  • Everyone, regardless of age or net worth, needs an estate plan.  An estate plan may simply consist of a will or may contain additional documents, like a trust. An estate plan ensures your assets (including money from bank accounts, stock, life insurance policies, property and real estate) are distributed according to your wishes. If you do not have an estate plan, you risk state law determining who will receive your assets.
