Don’t Wait for a Long Trip to Prepare Your Will

Many clients that come to my office to have our office prepare their wills, are often times motivated by the fact they are getting ready to take an overseas flight. They are afraid that something bad will happen to them on the long flight.

What is your chance of dying on a commercial air flight? The chance of dying in a commercial air flight is only 1 in 11 million.

What is your chances of dying in a car accident this year? Your odds of dying in a car accident this year is approximately 1 in 8,000.

So what is the moral of the story? The moral of the story is that you have a lot more to be worried about driving home to day than you do of taking that commercial air flight. You should be doing estate planning today rather than waiting till you take a long trip.

If you have any questions concerning wills or powers of attorney, you should consult an experienced estate planning attorney. Kent S. DeJean
