The most important estate-planning tool is a will. A will names the beneficiaries of your estate, names a personal representative to administer your will and makes provisions for minor or incapacitated children. It is particularly important in the case of disabled child that your will have provisions for personal protection of that child.

What is a will?

  • A will is a set of instructions that explains how you want your property distributed after your death. 

What are the benefits of a will?

  • A will allows you to decide how your estate will be distributed or managed after you die.  It lets your wishes be heard regarding the care of minor children by naming your preferred guardian.  It often prevents disputes among heirs and relatives.  In a large estate, a will can also reduce the amount of taxes that may be due at your death.

Can a will be changed?

  • You can change your will at any time as long as you are of sound mind.  You may want to change your will for many reasons, such as marriage, divorce, birth of children, or an increase in your assets.
