Retirement Planning Documents

These documents are available specifically to help farmers and ranchers use estate planning tools better. They provided as guides to introduce these topics, and are not intended to replace expert advice from a professional.

Alphabetically, here are additional resources to help farmers and ranchers make an informed and considered approach to your retirement planning, reducing the time and expense of working with legal and tax advisers.

This project was made possible through a grant from the North Central Risk Management Education Center to inform farmers and ranchers of their options for retiring or beginning in agriculture. These reports were prepared by the Center for Rural Affairs. Other partners in the project include the North Central Risk Management Education Center and the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
