Did you know that, actually, making a will could ultimately be a calming experience? And, especially these days, who couldn’t stand a little down time? Following are six reasons some people put off making a will. Have you found yourself thinking this way? If so, read on to discover how you can attend to these issues and take a page out of this adorable pup’s life and get yourself and the family some well deserved, stress relieving, peace of mind.
1. No Assets: I don’t have money or property to leave to my family.
While that may be true now, it may not be the case when you die and you may have assets of which you’re unaware such as benefits from your employer.
2. Cost: It’s expensive to have an attorney write a will.
Many people are pleasantly surprised by the affordability of writing a will. It could be far costlier to those you leave behind not to have a Will. I offer a discount to couples having their Wills drawn simultaneously.
3. Fear: I don’t want to think about death or illness.
This is probably the most popular reason to put off making a will, but remember, no one gets out of this world alive. It can be comforting to know that at least your affairs are in order when it does happen, leaving only the grieving for the loved ones left behind. Plus, relieving stress can extend your life!
4. Age: I’m too young to make a will.
Young people sometimes die and without a will their children and assets could end up in the wrong hands. It is never too early to plan and be prepared.
5. Assumption: My Husband/Wife/Partner automatically inherits my property.
Maybe, but it depends on who you leave behind and if/when Legislature decides to change Intestacy laws (laws which apply when there is no Will.) Wouldn’t you like certainty on such an important matter?
6. Too Busy:
My process is designed to be minimally invasive and respectful of your time. I can even visit you in the comfort of your own home for your convenience! I am also available to travel throughout Pennsylvania and New York to nursing home facilities. So, now there are no excuses! Call today to schedule your consultation to begin the process of preparing your Will and relieving some stress.
Did you know that 70% of persons die without a current will? That’s a tragic mistake unless you think the government can do a better job of handling your assets and children.
Don’t let this happen to your family.
