The receipt or notification of an inheritance is often accompanied by various conflicting emotions. On the one hand, you are happy to except the inheritance, be it a priceless heirloom, an object rich in sentimental value, or a cash windfall. On the other hand, you are faced with the fact that you are receiving this inheritance because someone, and likely someone that you cared very deeply about, has passed on. Mixed in with these sentiments is the urge-in the case of a monetary inheritance-to splurge on something that you have always wanted, be it a new car, a cruise, or an upgraded home.
When faced with all of these feelings and emotions at the same time, you may begin to feel overwhelmed, particularly if you are smart enough to realize that you should be investing at least some of your inheritance, but arent sure exactly how to go about it. This article is written with the assumption that you have received (or have been named beneficiary) of a monetary inheritance, and has been written in order to provide you with suggestions for managing said inheritance in a wise fashion. Listed below are five tips for handling your inheritance.
Determine exactly what you currently have, and what you are owed. In most cases, dispersal of your inheritance involves more than just a check from the executor of an estate. Instead, you will likely receive separate monies from individual investments. Usually, you receive these monies on a stepped-up basis, which means that the cost bases of the assets are determined as of the date of death. You should also be aware that you wont necessarily receive all of the assets at the same time. For these reasons, it is essential to sit down with your financial planner and determine exactly what the monetary value of your inheritance is, how it is invested, and what the cost basis is. It is also important to know where the money is coming from, since different types of accounts (like Individual Retirement Accounts or Insurance benefits) have different protocol for withdrawing funds. Remember that this is your money, so dont be afraid to be proactive and ask for it.

A secured loan allows you to borrow a much greater amount of money over a longer period of time than an unsecured, personal loan would, but you have to remember that the longer the term of the loan then the more interest will be added onto the cost of the borrowing. You also have to take into account this is a secured loan which means that you are going to be putting up your home as security against the amount you are going to borrow, the amount you are actually able to borrow will depend on how much equity you have in your home along with other factors.

The reason people have a 401K retirement plan is so they can fund their older years when they don’t have an income. Many financial planners advise against taking out 401K loans, because it means that you are taking away some of your secure retirement funds.
You can always withdraw funds from your 401K account, but the 401k rule and tax penalties make this a very costly action. If you are considering taking out a 401K loan, make sure it is for an excellent reason and only as a last resort. There are no government rules about the loans but many employers do set restrictions, such as keeping a minimum balance, how may loans you can have at once, and that married employees must get consent from their spouse.
It is the plan administrator who will impose the most conditions on your 401K loans. Most administrators require that you have a valid reason for applying for the loan, and generally will only approve it if it is for one of the following reasons: medical expenses, college tuition fees, deposit for first home buyers, to prevent bankruptcy or eviction because of falling behind with mortgage payments. A 410K loan should not be for day to day expenses.
All loans are setup to collect a payment from you once a month. That
means you are making 12 payments each year. Interest is added to your
loan based on the balance you owe and the rate per your original
contract. So, for example, If you have a loan for $100,000 and your
interest rate is 4% for the first month you are going to add to your
balance $400.00 or 4% of the $100,000 loan balance. Each month you’ll
add 4% of whatever the remaining balance is. If you really want to save
your thousands of dollars and cut years off your mortgage you want to
reduce the principal balance so the interest charges are less.
How does it work?
There are 12 months in a year, and in every year there is 52 weeks. If
you pay mortgage payment with a Bi-Weekly program you pay 26 payments of
one-half your payment instead of 12 regular payments. This results in
two additional half payments each year or one full payment. The extra
payment goes towards the principal of the loan. By reducing the loan
balance the homeowner is also reducing the interest charges. By paying
like this your loan will have less interest costs and the term of the
loan will be reduced.
