Millennials, Feeling Their Mortality During Covid-19, Start Writing Their Wills – The Wall Street Journal
Millennials are finally embracing one of the cornerstones of adulthood by writing their wills.
Lawyers and financial advisers are hearing more frequently from younger people who want to get their affairs in order should they die unexpectedly. Thirty-two percent of the adults under 35 who wrote a will said it was because of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a 2020 survey by online legal documents company LegalZoom . Caring.com, a senior-care referral service, said about 27% of 18- to 34-year-olds had a will in 2021, compared with 18% in 2019.
