For young adults
Estate planning may seem unnecessary for young adults but it is actually extremely important. Everyone becomes an adult in the eyes of the law upon turning age 18. This means without proper documents in place, family members could be prevented from making important legal, financial, and health care decisions if something unfortunate were to happen.
Anyone could become seriously ill or injured at any time. Creating estate planning documents as a young adult ensures you choose who can manage your finances, you get the health care you want, and your assets pass to the people you love.
College Students & Young Professionals — Without legally naming parents or trusted individuals to make decisions for you, your loved ones could end up having to go to court to be granted authority to obtain information, manage your finances, or make health care decisions if you are unable to do so yourself. The situation could be an inconvenience or worse, life-threatening. By legally naming individuals, the people you choose will be able to take care of you if it becomes necessary.
Newlyweds — Start your marriage with a solid foundation. Proper estate planning will ensure your new spouse will be able to have access to all finances and be the one to make health care decisions for you if something happens. By creating your plan now, future changes to your plan as your family situation changes won’t feel as daunting.
New Parents — Your estate plan does not have to be anything complicated, but it is extremely important to have documents in place to ensure an unfortunate event isn’t made worse. For example, not naming guardians could result in your children being left in the custody and care of someone you don’t know or would never want.
As a young adult, your family will be glad you took the time to put a plan in place should the documents ever be needed. Make sure your wishes are followed in the event of incapacity or death.
