This article touches on a few benefits Abe failed to give his family — and there are others I can add, for example the lack of any asset protection planning for survivors.
It’s very surprising to many that Abraham Lincoln, an esteemed lawyer in addition to being one of the greatest Presidents in history, never took the time to make out a will, even by age 54. Yet, it’s much more common than most people realize. Some estimates place the number of adult Americans without a will at two-thirds; others place the figure at closer to 55%. Either way, it’s shocking how many people don’t take the time to plan for how their lifetime of savings will pass when they die.
