As this article states, some people think that “If I make a WIll, I am going to die.”  Obviously, this couldn’t be further from the truth.  If you get car insurance, you are not affirming that you are now going to get into an accident. Likewise, if you get house insurance you are not affirming that your home will now burn down.  If you get a Will, which everyone should, it is merely ensuring that your final wishes are carried out in the manner you have chosen. However, unlike car and home insurance, an estate plan is guaranteed to be utilized!
