Everyone has an estate. It includes everything from your car to your investments. The big question is, “What will happen to your estate when you are gone?” More than 50% of the US population does not have a will and isn’t prepared to protect their assets and family after they are gone.
When you think about an estate plan, you need to think about where you want to leave your real estate, life insurance, investment and savings accounts, furniture and personal possessions after you die. While it may seem complicated and time consuming to list your assets and divide them among family, friends, or charity organizations, not taking this time could put your assets at risk.
