This series, including part 1 at www.SmartPlanning101.com/20, focuses on a new type of irrevocable trust known as the irrevocable pure grantor trust.

In this episode, David Zumpano, a nationally recognized expert on asset protection and elder law planning (also a CPA & attorney) discusses this irrevocable trust, who it is for, and why you may want one.
Learn how this type of trust is one of the best ways to truly keep your money “safe.”
