By William Rambaum, P.A. |

Life insurance is one of the least fun things a person can buy.  It invites gallows humor, like, “I’m worth more dead than I am alive.”  As people return to social events after a year of isolation where there was nothing to do but watch newscasters count the number of people who had died… Read More »


Gender-Related Estate Planning Challenges For Women

By William Rambaum, P.A. |

It is an understatement that women hear so many mixed messages about health, finances, and interpersonal relationships that the only way to stay sane is to tune them all out.  Most maddening is being told to live in the moment by being told that you have to be prepared for everything.  After years of… Read More »

After a year of social isolation, it feels amazing to social in person with anyone, even people you don’t particularly like.  If anything, when a live person is in your presence, a lot of people’s impulse is to reminisce about the things you are thankful for.  Maybe you are grateful to be back to… Read More »
