There is no age prerequisite to start putting your estate plan together, although the sooner, the better. Even beginning the process in your 20s is not too soon. With children, a house and medical issues, items to place in your estate plan pile up. 

Then something unexpected arises that you may have no control over. Be it an accident, severe illness or other medical emergencies; this is the time to put your estate plan in place if you have not already done so. Is it possible to put together something this important quickly?
