Do you need a will?

Did you know that less than one third of all people who die in the United States each year have a will, and that many of those wills are defective?

Do you need to accomplish any of the following? If so, you need a will.

EXPRESS YOUR LOVE… A person who dies without a will leaves their loved ones to make difficult decisions. Uncertainties about the deceased’s final wishes often lead to family turmoil.

AFFIRM YOUR BASIC BELIEFS AND COMMITMENTS… The preamble in your will can affirm the principals that guided you to make your decisions. This allows those interpreting your will insight into your choices. Those carrying out your wishes should understand them as fully as possible.

PUT YOURSELF IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT… A) Designate who will care for your dependent children; B) specify who will serve when it’s time to close your estate; C) decide on the timing for distribution of gifts; D) designate which charitable organizations you will support. Knowing that you have cared for loved ones and other concerns close to your heart can put you at ease.

SAFEGUARD YOUR ASSETS… Careful financial planning has helped you conserve your estate during life. Protect what you’ve worked for. A will can reduce probate costs in many states. It may also reduce, delay or even eliminate estate taxes. This way, more of what you worked for can benefit loved ones or carry out charitable intentions
