According to a recent survey, 68% of Americans don’t have a will. And if they don’t have a will, they almost certainly don’t have any type of estate plan. Why is this?
When asked why they’ve failed to start an estate plan, most people give one of the following reasons:
- I don’t want to think about my death.
- I’m too young to need an estate plan.
- I don’t have enough assets to make an estate plan necessary.
- I’m not married and don’t have kids, so I don’t need an estate plan.
- Estate planning is too complicated.
- Estate planning takes too long.
- Estate planning is too expensive.
Whether you’re a tax CPA, a Realtor, an investment advisor, a wealth management professional or any other type of financial planner or advisor, you’ve undoubtedly heard all of the above — and more — from your clients. Yet you know the problems the lack of an estate plan can cause, especially for your high-asset clients.
