Kelly Phillips Erb Forbes Staff
Simply put: without a will, you typically have no control over your own assets at death.
Prince Rogers Nelson (better known as Prince) made headlines recently when his sister filed documents claiming that the entertainer died without a will. As hard as that might be to believe, it's not all that unusual. According to a 2015 Rocket Lawyer survey, 64% of Americans don't have a will.
Not surprisingly, the number is higher for younger Americans (70% those aged 45-54) than for older Americans (54% those aged 55-64 do not have a Will). Prince was 57.
Of those surveyed without a will, most (60%) indicated they simply haven't gotten around to making one yet while just over a quarter (27%) don't feel that it's urgent. Why put it off?

Mostly, we’ve been talking about avoiding assets that are irrationally expensive (like most stocks and real estate today). And we’ve been discussing ways to raise cash and diversify outside of traditional investments to protect your capital.
But now that you have all that cash handy, when do you pull the trigger? When is an asset cheap enough to buy? You can lose just as much money buying too soon as you can buying too late.
If you look around the world today, there are plenty of assets “on sale.”
Emerging markets have gotten crushed thanks to troubled economies, a soaring dollar (which makes their dollar-denominated debts harder to pay) and trade war fears.
