  1. ”I don’t need an estate plan because I don’t have a lot of money.”
  2. “I don’t need to update my estate plan because nothing has changed.”
  3. “My beneficiary designations are in order.”
  4. “I know my trust is fully funded” (most don’t have all their assets inside it.)
  5. “I don’t need an estate plan because my kids will do the right thing.”
