Estate Planning for Young Adults

Young adults may have the misconceived notion that estate planning is only necessary for certain people, such as individuals of a high net worth or those who are aging. However, there are certain documents that everyone should consider, including the youngest generation of millennials. Having such a plan in place can avoid costly court proceedings as well as plan for your family should you become incapacitated or upon your death. An estate plan for a millennial would likely include a Health Care Proxy, Living Will, Power of Attorney, and a Last Will and Testament.
