Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Lawyer: Millennial Estate Planning

5. Digital Assets

Millennials are the first generation born in the digital age, and for the most part we use technology every day. Social media and email lead the way, but we may also have cryptocurrency and investment, banking, e-commerce, and even e-sports accounts. Lawyers at Yoder Kraus & Jessup, PC can help you craft a plan for your digital assets.

4. Travel

From the Grand Canyon to the Cayman Islands, our planet is filled with amazing places, natural and otherwise. With only so much time to visit so many amazing destinations, our generation has a running start on exploring the world. Consider planning your estate before you climb Mt. Fuji or gaze in awe at the Great Pyramid of Giza. Much like planning your trip ahead of time, planning your estate puts your mind at ease and allows you to focus on the finer points of your vacation.

3. Pets

Millennials are now the largest demographic of pet owners, and part of being a responsible pet owner means ensuring your pet is well cared for no matter what. A carefully drafted estate plan can make sure your surviving pets are comfortable for the rest of their lives.

2. Student Loans

It’s safe to say student loan debt is a problem, as Americans owe 1.48 Trillion (with a T!) dollars of student loan debt. Even worse, private student loans are generally not discharged after death. It is important to plan your estate with a Lawyer to help ensure your heirs are not left with your debt.

1. Loved Ones

A rock-solid estate plan is a rare sight to see, but if it’s done right, your loved ones won’t have to stress over your digital assets, pets, debt, property, or even who gets your vintage record collection. Work with a Lawyer at Yoder Kraus & Jessup, PC to draft your estate, then take solace in the knowledge that everything is taken care of for you and your loved ones.
