What if I don't want to leave anything to a child?

There are a few common reasons for leaving a child out of your Estate Plan. 

Maybe the child is the beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement plan. Maybe you don’t have a relationship with the child, or don’t want to leave assets to your children that would discourage them from pursuing their own productive careers. 

Whatever your reason, you can choose to disinherit a child from your Estate Plan. However, some states limit the ability to disinherit children under a certain age.  

You can do this through Trust & Will. The default is to include all children in your Estate Plan, but you are able to disinherit a child (Or anyone else) by listing their name under "Exclusions" on your Summary page.
