Nationwide polls show that the majority of adults in the United States either have inadequate estate plans or no estate plans at all. The grieving families of decedents without proper estate plans will be left to struggle with everything from end-of-life care to the payment of rent and property expenses. Meanwhile, the assets of the estate will be tied up in a lengthy and expensive probate process. For the sake your loved ones it is critical to invest the time necessary to develop a sound estate plan.
What do the 25-year-old bank teller and the 62-year-old investment banker have in common? They both need an estate plan. The idea that young people or people with modest assets don’t need to worry about estate planning is completely false; the only difference will be the exact composition of their plans.
