Wills Week

Wills Week

October 18-24, 2021 was National Estate Planning Awareness Week, and UMB participated by providing free estate planning resources and hosted a free estate planning conference. 

Don’t have a will? You’re in good company.

58% of Americans do not have a will. The top seven reasons are:

  • Haven’t gotten around to it
  • Not enough assets to leave anyone
  • Too expensive
  • Don’t know how
  • Don’t have anyone to leave assets to
  • Takes too long
  • Rather not think about it
