We often get asked, “when is the best time to have a will prepared”? The answer is simple: now. Why? Because the randomness of life necessitates it.
Often times after death, in addition to dealing with the loss of a loved one, family members are left with the question of how your assets should be distributed. A will allows them to hear your answer.
A will is a legal document that assigns who will manage your estate upon your passing. More importantly, it is a means to communicate essential information, such as your preference for funeral arrangements, a listing of your life insurance policies, whether you have a burial plot or wish to be cremated, in addition to many other pieces of information your loved ones will need to know.
A will also presents an opportunity for you to send a special message or say a personalized goodbye to your loved ones.
Do not take the risk of dying without a will. Be proactive, and call us for a free consultation.
