An article published in The New York Post on April 26 revealed that a staggering number of Americans either don’t have a will or lack an updated one.
According to the analysis, approximately half of married couples in the U.S. have no written will, as well as 80% of people aged between 35 and 44. The report also said 41% of Americans aged 55 to 64 don’t have a will. Some experts believe many Americans see the process of creating a will as inconvenient and costly, while others do not think it is a priority when they feel healthy.
