People take steps to protect themselves and their families in various different ways. Individuals buy insurance even when they may never have to use it, because they want to protect their own interests and the interests of their family.
However, this very sound logic is often ignored when it comes to estate planning. Statistics indicate that most of the adults in the United States have not executed all the appropriate estate planning documents.
This is a curious phenomenon, because at the risk of overstating the obvious, everyone is going to pass away someday. Most people are not prepared for something that is definitely going to happen.
When you plan your estate, you are taking action for the benefit of your loved ones. That should be motivation enough to compel you to put a plan in place.
Many people are not prepared because they are not aware of the importance of estate planning. They are under the impression that things will just take care of themselves when that fateful day arrives. Others procrastinate, because they feel that they will have time to put an estate plan in place when they reach an advanced age.
Regardless of the rationale, estate planning is a must for all responsible adults.
