Why Millennials and Even Gen-Z Need an Estate Plan
Whether you are in your 30s or even 20s, it is still a good idea to have an estate plan, especially now. Why should you have a will and medical directive at the very least? Here are a few important reasons.
- Accidents can happen – Tragic accidents don’t care about your age. It is important to have an estate plan in place, even if you have not had time to save up a lot of money yet. This will benefit your family if anything should ever happen to you.
- You need to make healthcare decisions – Estate planning is about more than just money. Having an advance medical directive in place can allow you to make healthcare decisions in advance. It also lets you choose an advocate to speak for you should you ever become incapacitated.
- COVID-19 can impact any family – The new coronavirus has brought the importance of estate planning to the fore. After all, a person can go from healthy to on a ventilator in a matter of days. Will the hospital know who to contact, who is authorized to make medical decisions for you, or what decisions you have already made in advance?
