In this article, Canet discusses a recent study on parents’ reticence to discuss their retirement and estate plans with their children.

Glen Burnie, MD – Aug 19, 2014 – Estate planning attorney and host of The Savvy Investor TV and radio show, Michael Canet, recently published an article on The Savvy Investor website on the disconnect between parents and children when it comes to discussing and planning finances. In “Why Avoiding the Money Talk Can Leave Your Family Unprepared,” Canet outlines the effects of not talking, or not going into detail, about your finances before retirement.

Canet writes, “Many adult children are more than willing to help support their parents’ financial needs if retirement funds fall short, but they need to factor those needs into their own savings plans. Giving your children substantial notice of whether, or not, you’ll require additional funds from them (or if you’re planning on moving in during your twilight years) will help them adequately prepare. Maybe they’ll build you a guest house.”
