Do You Really Want to Die Rich?

Estate Planning Attorney Kyle Krull recently posted the article What is "Don't Die Rich" Estate Planning?  on his blog.  I found it interesting the change in how people approach inheritance.

Due to lengthening life spans, in many cases, parental assets will not pass along as an inheritance to their "children" until they themselves are near retirement age.

I am seeing a change where people want to enjoy their estates and see the benefits of their gifts during their lifetimes.  My concern is that people will give away assets that they need to survive on during their retirement though.
