It is National Estate Planning Awareness Week

It’s probably fair to say that “National Estate Planning Awareness Week” is an invention of estate planning professionals who would like to promote their businesses. On the other hand, that does not mean that estate planning awareness is a bad thing. In fact, most people fail to take simple steps that could make their lives, and the lives of their loved ones, much easier when inevitable bad things occur, like a death in the family or the incapacity of a loved one. One of those steps is the creation of a revocable living trust.
