Last week I was interviewed for Marketplace Weekend, a syndicated program on NPR on the topic of inheritance. One thing that I found interesting was the idea that people can plan to spend all of their money before they die leaving no inheritance. In my experience this is rare. What is much more likely is people will run out of assets prior to death or will still have assets when they die. For example, many people own a house with equity when they die which their heirs will inherit.
