We all think nothing bad can happen to us, especially when we are still young and in our 20s. But accidents do happen, and you want to be ready. Hopefully, your accident isn’t too severe, and you will soon recover. But it’s not always that easy. As the saying goes, plan for the worst but expect the best. You need to understand that you’re never too young for an estate plan.
You don’t have to be extremely wealthy to have an estate plan. It is a set of legal documents that will help manage your decisions and assets, either temporarily or after you pass away. You may own a car, bitcoins, money in the bank or home… and you want a say in how to distribute your assets if you suddenly die.
Here are some documents to have in your estate plan:
And don’t forget – you’ll want an ‘In Case of Emergency‘ document to let your loved ones know that you have an estate plan and how to access your documents.
While you may not be close to retirement or (hopefully) death, you are never too young for an estate plan. An experienced estate planning attorney can help you for years to come.
