I'm reading up on a lot of this stuff online, and it's all new to me. - writing wills and naming the executor and beneficiaries - setting up PODs (payable on death) and TODs (transfer on death) - strategies to avoid probate court Etc. It made me realize that this is one area of personal finance that isn't talked about very often, so many people like myself forget to do it. Part of it could be that I'm a millennial. Usually estate planning is a topic that creeps up into the minds of older people.
