Don’t buy into the myths and misconceptions that are all around us. Consider these three myths and the truths behind them:

Myth 1: Only rich people & celebrities create wills.

Creating a will is for anyone that owns anything – not just for the rich and famous. If you have an asset or property in your name, you’ll want specify exactly who that asset belongs to. If you don’t, the division of your assets will be decided based on your state’s laws.

Myth 2: After I’ve written a will, I don’t have to touch it again.

Keeping it updated ensures that your wishes are honored as life changes occur. Once it is written, you can absolutely change it. It’s good to revisit your will once a year to make sure your wishes have not changed. Certain aspects of life that would cause an alteration may include:

  • Adoption or birth of another child
  • Asset purchase or sale
  • Death or serious illness of someone in your will
  • Divorce or separation
  • New pension plan
