When you were between the ages of 18-36, did you ever consider setting up an estate plan? Did you think you were too young to have an estate plan? Most individuals don’t think about estate planning until they are between the ages of 53-71. It’s important for younger people to have wills, too. Especially if they have children, to ensure that they’ll be cared for by the people the parents want as guardians in the event of their death. Yet 78 percent of millennials (ages 18-36) and 64 percent of Generation Xers (ages 37-52) do not have a will. Some individuals think that it costs too much. The average estate plan costs about the same as a new video game console. Why not put that money into an estate plan that will last your lifetime instead of a video game console that will change in the next six months? There are those that believe they don’t have enough assets to have an estate plan. Guess again, if you are living, have retirement, have children, own a home, a vehicle or even minimal money stashed away, you need an estate plan.
