Planning Your Estate Near the Top of the List of New Year’s Resolutions
Since 2012 has just arrived, New Year’s resolutions are in full swing. According to Forbes, there are 12 resolutions we should all make – and “plan your estate” is number two.
Orange County Estate Planning Attorney Darlynn Morgan noted that estate planning is one of the most overlooked areas of personal financial management. More than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death. This costs many families wasted dollars and unnecessary hardship that can be minimized with proper planning.
As to planning your estate, the author of the article recognizes that we never know when we might need estate planning documents, and that these are “notoriously easy to procrastinate so it’s good to get them out of the way.”
The complete listing of resolutions can be seen below:
1. Set goals;
2. Plan your estate;
3. Check your credit;
4. See where your money is going;
5. See where you can cut back;
6. Make sure you have the right amount of insurance;
