What are the consequences of not doing any estate planning? Well, you can roll the dice and maybe you won't have any problems. But with an average of 1 in 5 adults needing some type of long-term care in their lives, why tempt fate?

In this podcast episode, Long-Term Care Planner Kristin Daugherty talks about what can happen if you wait until you need long-term care to do your estate planning.
