National Estate Planning Awareness Week
October 17-23 was National Estate Planning Awareness Week. Many Essex County residents believe you need to be wealthy or elderly to have an estate plan, which is simply not true.

That’s why in honor of the week, the Essex County Surrogate’s Court encouraged our community to make estate planning a priority.
