Do You Have a Will?
Although 76% of U.S. adults say having a will is important, only 40% actually have one. The most common excuse is, "I just haven't gotten around to it." It's probably not surprising that older people are more likely to have a will, but the percentage who do is relatively low considering the importance of this legal document.
