A recent Hearts & Wallets survey found that estate planning was particularly problematic for many Americans in their 50s and 60s. What’s more, of all the financial tasks the survey listed, estate planning was the only one that a higher percentage of pre-retirees and retirees said was harder in 2016 than in 2015.
To help make this tricky and complicated part of personal finances a little less so, Next Avenue has pulled together 16 articles on estate planning. Some can help nearly everyone; others are targeted towards particular types of people with special estate-planning concerns (women, single people, LGBT couples and more). The stories include advice on topics ranging from wills to trusts to beneficiary designations to passing down your digital legacy. We hope you’ll find them useful.
