A last will and testament is a highly important document that states what will happen to your assets in the event of your incapacitation. This includes your estate, properties, money, and other possessions. Without a last will and testament, your assets will be divided by the government without considering your intended wishes.
Why should I write a Last Will?
Here are a few reasons why you should have a last will:
- It guarantees your wishes are carried out after death, including how your assets will be distributed
- It ensures your loved ones are financially secure after your passing
- It helps determine who your executor will be
- It saves your loved ones’ time and money
How do I properly store my last will?
In the past, important documents like your last will were usually stored in a personal safe or filing cabinet with a lock. In some instances, individuals utilize attorneys to manage document storage in order to ensure the files location is shared with their loved ones.
