Estate planning is one of the most overlooked areas of personal financial management. It has been estimated that more than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death. This circumstance can cause many families unnecessary expenses and financial hardship. Proper planning can help avoid these unintended consequences.
