Having an estate plan is a must for all adults, but some might not discuss the contents of the plan with anyone. This can leave your loved ones confused and wondering what you were thinking when you created the plan. A better option is to have at least a brief discussion with them while you are still living so they can ask questions and clarify any points they aren't sure about.
You don't have to speak to everyone as a group. You can use individual conversations so you have the ability to customize the talk to each person. As a general guide, you should discuss this with everyone in the estate plan, as well as those who might think they are in it but actually aren't.
