Uncertain Future

Posted on | February 15, 2016 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
As my parents have gotten older (they are both in their late 70s), they have gotten more and more philanthropic and seem to give money away to just about any charity that asks. Since their money is MY inheritance, shouldn’t I be consulted?  They always promised that when they go, I will get everything. And that is something I have counted on.  Is there a nice way to get them to slow down a bit?

Dear Andrew:
It may be YOUR inheritance, but it is still THEIR money, and likely to be THEIR money for another decade at least. We suggest you concentrate on managing YOUR own money, and perhaps you will be less concerned about THEIRS.
