Do you think that you will die owing money?
I'll owe something. I'm sure the electric company, water plant, phone, cable, etc won't comp the month I die in.
I will die with a mortgage. But the estate can easily sell the property at a gain and distribute the funds per the will.
I'm going to run up a massive debt on a lifestyle that I can't possibly afford, and then leave it for my children and grandchildren to deal with.
… I was channeling my inner Republican there for a moment, sorry.
Well yeah, when I spend my last few months in Hawaii on vacation I'll crank the bill to hundreds of thousands of dollars and will never have to pay it back.
I plan on dying without any federal debt owed by the federal government.
Nope. I'm debt free and I plan on keeping it that way.
Do you mean having a net worth of less than zero or simply having unpaid bills when you die?
If I look at the linked article that inspired the question, I'm thinking of a negative net worth. Or at least something more than a monthly credit card balance...which I will have. A car loan, mortgage, loan shark...etc.
I voted no, but technically I'll have whatever credit card debt, utilities used but not yet billed, etc, but I will have the cash to cover all of those.
Only what charges remain from the current month's credit card spending. Assuming no catastrophic medical expenses at the end.
