There’s an old adage that goes with aging: “Older is wiser.” This means that older people are more apt to make good decisions because of their experience. Moreover, older people are best suited to impart advice because of the roads they have travelled.
In first post of the New Year, we highlighted why estate planning should be an important resolution. Essentially, estate planning can save money in the long run, help avoid confusion between grieving family members and give the person effectuating the plan some peace of mind.
The end of the holiday season is drawing near. With that comes the first days of 2016 and the standard New Year’s resolutions that people make to begin the year strong.
