Many people make serious errors in estate planning — or fail to plan at all.

Here are five of the most common mistakes, according to a story on

* Not having a will. A survey showed 64 percent of Americans don’t have one.

* Failing to update your will. If your life changes, your will probably should too.

* Not being realistic about your heirs. Do they have the capability to handle the money they inherit.

* Overlooking the need for a trust. Trusts can control of the timing of the distribution of assets, among other things.
