Many Americans don't have a living trust or will

A new study put out by Caring.com found that most Americans either don't have a will or trust or haven't done enough to fully complete the process of getting a will or estate. About 58 percent of respondents to the survey said they did not have a will or trust in place. The number was even higher for people who have children under the age of 18, which is surprising. About 64 percent of respondents who had children under 18 didn't have a will or trust established.
