It's Never Too Early to Have an Estate Plan

It's never too early to start estate planning, and if you already have a family, getting your personal affairs in order is a must. The sooner you start planning, the more prepared you will be for life's unexpected twists and turns.

Failing to create a will -- also known as dying "intestate" -- can be costly to your heirs and leaves you no say over who gets custody of your children and how your assets will be managed and distributed. If you haven't done your estate planning, make it a priority.
