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.
