Estate planning is an often overlooked area of personal financial management. By some estimates, 70% of American parents do not have an estate plan! Most mistakenly hear the word “estate” and assume “estate planning” is just for the Bill Gates, Elon Musks, or Warren Buffets of the world. Estate planning, however, is for everyone!
Estate planning is essential to protecting you, your family, your assets, and perhaps most importantly, your legacy. That is, who you are, and what matters most to you.
Did you know that this week, October 19-26 is “National Estate Planning Awareness Week?” National Estate Planning Awareness Week (NEPAW) is the perfect time to make sure your affairs are in order in the event of an illness, an accident, or untimely death.
