If your will is valid and up-to-date, pat yourself on the back. You have done what many fail to do.
But there are many of us who fail to plan. We put off important decisions and talking with a qualified attorney.
Take a look at the following 10 reasons most people give for not having a will.
1. I don’t have time to work on my will.
2. I don’t have an attorney who can draft my will.
3. I cannot afford to pay for a will right now.
4. My estate is too small to bother with a will.
5. I can’t deal with the idea of dying.
6. I worry that my decisions might cause family disagreements.
7. I don’t know where to start.
8. I’m too young for a will.
9. I don’t know who to name as executor.
10. I will just let my survivors make all the decisions.
Now, do any of those reasons sound familiar? If so, allow us to send you our free Estate & Gift Planning Kit. In it are answers why any of those above reasons fall short. This kit is loaded with valuable information that can help you and your loved ones.
