I just read a good article discussing the need for estate planning even when you are not “Old” or “Rich.”  You can find the article here: http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2009/dec/03/dont-wait-till-youre-old-or-rich-estate-plan/ Although I don’t agree with all the statements that are made in the article, such as using online forms, I do think it provides a very informative and “real” point of view on why planning when you’re younger is advantageous.  I’ve always said it is easier to plan when you don’t think it matters.  It’s when you’re back is up against the wall due to age, health, or other reasons, that planning becomes more difficult, as the decisions seem more “real.”  So what do you think?  Please share your comments.
