There can be a lot of unfounded fears that surround Estate Planning. One that comes up sometimes is that “if you plan for it, then it will happen.”

I can assure you that’s not the case. In fact, “failing to plan is planning to fail” is a much better mantra when it comes to this type of thing.

There are many of these types of myths. Here are several more reasons from about why people don’t have an Estate Plan:

  • 74% of American adults believe that Estate Planning is a confusing topic. (WealthCounsel)
  • 36% say they “haven't gotten around to it.”
  • 30% say they "don't have enough assets to leave.”
  • 7% say they believe “it's too expensive.”
  • 6% say they “don't know how to write a Will.”

Remember, 77% of Americans believe Estate Planning is important, regardless of wealth. They are just busy with day-to-day life and haven’t taken the time to think about their future.

Don’t let simple negligence impact your loved ones! Break the generational failures and set an example of planning for the future health and wealth of your family.
