When should I start planning my estate?
As long as you are legally an adult and you have an income, it is never too early to start planning your estate. While estate planning may be something often associated with older individuals, it is both possible and wise to begin putting your affairs in order as soon as you reach your early twenties.
While most people can expect to live well beyond this time period, having an estate in place can help simplify the legal process for your loved ones should you unexpectedly pass away. No matter how modest your financial assets, these funds will need to be accounted for after your death —and if you do not have a plan for your money during your life, the people you love will have to create a plan once you are gone.
Plan Your Estate As Soon As You Can
We encourage everyone to plan their estate as soon as they are able. Depending on the complexity of your finances, you may be able to handle the paperwork and process on your own.
