Why You’re Never Too Young To Have An Estate Plan
When people think of estate planning, they tend to think of middle-age or older people, who are more settled in life, and most likely have some assets to preserve, and children to care for. Although that may be the “typical” estate planning client, once a person attains the age of majority (i.e. age 18), he/she is really not too young to draft an estate plan.
To have an estate plan, you don’t have to be rich and have a lot of assets. You also do not have to be further on in life, nor do you need to have children that you need to plan for in the event of an untimely death.
