Deciding when to get a will is crucial for securing your future and protecting loved ones. Watch the full video to help you decide. But here are key factors to consider:

1. Assessing Risk Exposure: The urgency of having a will may seem low for young individuals with limited assets. However, as responsibilities grow, the need for a will becomes evident. Dependents and significant assets are strong indicators. Another factor is buying property and other significant assets that should push for creating a will.

2. Considering Assets: Assets play a crucial role in determining the need for a will. While some assets, like a 401(k), may have designated beneficiaries, having a house or real estate can complicate matters without a will. Even with beneficiaries, a will ensures clarity.

3. Impact of Dependents: Parents should prioritize a will to ensure their children are cared for as they wish. A will ensures that dependents will be cared for according to their wishes in the event of an untimely passing.

4. Preventing Disputes: A clear will prevents family conflicts and ensures your wishes are honored. A well-drafted will can help ensure that assets are distributed according to the individual’s wishes, minimizing the likelihood of disagreements or legal battles among heirs.
