Having a will is the most basic step you can take in planning your estate. Without this document in place, it’s up to the government to decide how to divvy up your assets. Despite this, our recent survey reveals that nearly six in 10 adults in the U.S. still doesn’t have a will.

And according to the survey, many also lack a healthcare power of attorney – another crucial legal tool that lets you choose the person who will make medical decisions for you if and when you are unable to do so.

Our infographic includes some key findings from the survey and more on why you need estate planning documents.
