Yes, Even Millennials Should Have an Estate Plan

Many people believe that estate planning is only for elders. The truth is that younger folks, including millennials, can benefit from having an estate plan of their own.

Millennials are generally defined as individuals born between 1981 and 1996—that is, people between the ages of 25 and 40. This is the age at which many people begin their careers and start families of their own. If you have a child, you should at the very least have a last will and testament. It allows you to name a guardian for your minor children, which helps ensure they will be raised according to your wishes if you and your spouse pass away unexpectedly.

Another reason millennials need an estate plan is to ensure people of their own choosing can make medical and financial decisions on their behalf in the event of incapacity. Legal documents such as powers of attorney for health care and finances can accomplish this goal and spare your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions about your care and/or finances if you can no longer make them yourself.

Estate planning can help you accomplish many other goals depending on your particular needs. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your options.
