Only about half of Americans ages 55-64 even have a will. Fewer have an estate plan.
Even if you have an estate plan, however, it doesn’t mean your work is over, according to a story in Forbes.

- You have or adopt a child
- You get injured
- Your goals change
- You inherit
- You buy or sell a business
- You move to another state
