As a millennial, the last thing that comes to mind is creating a Will. There are so many other balancing acts we have in these pivotal years of adulthood: paying off debt, becoming new parents, saving for retirement, and the many other pulls that life has to offer. However, creating and maintaining Estate Planning documents are not just important, they are a critical stepping stone for future growth. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional, I guide clients on the Estate Planning documents they need during major events like graduating college, entering into marriage or a committed partnership, or expanding their family (fur parents, included!).

And I suspect many millennials are facing the same issues as me.
But I know that creating a Will is a really significant measure of adulthood, and one that makes many future life decisions much easier.
