Think You'll Live Forever?
Of course, none of us believes that we will live forever. However, because many people think they will live well into their 80s or 90s, they postpone drawing up a will much earlier. In fact, according to a recent 2017 poll, 78 percent of millennials (ages 18-36) do not have a will and 64 percent of Generation Xers (ages 37 to 52) do not have one either. Nor do 40 percent of respondents in the 53- to 71-year-old age group. However, 81 percent of those age 72 years or older have a will or living trust. Those without wills should bear in mind that their state’s intestacy laws will determine how their property is distributed upon their death. A will is one of the best gifts you can leave for your loved ones in the event of your death. If you die without a will, there is no guarantee that your intended desires will be carried out. By making a will, you ensure that your estate is distributed according to your wishes. To schedule a free consultation, please call Pruitt Law Offices S.C. at 262-633-8301.
