National Estate Planning Awareness Week

Estate planning is an often overlooked element of financial planning + wellness – it is estimated that 56% of Americans do not have an up-to-date estate plan.

National Estate Planning Awareness Week was adopted in 2008 to help the public understand what estate planning is and why it is such a vital component of financial wellness.  Assisted by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) and 49 additional members of the House of Representatives, H. Res. 1499 named National Estate Planning Awareness Week on September 27, 2008.
