What Is a Will?
A will is a legal document that states how your property should be distributed after your death. A will may also name an executor, who will take care of the legal and administrative aspects of distributing your property.
What Is the Difference Between a Will and a Living Will?
A will is a legal document that states how your property should be distributed after your death. A living will gives directions for the medical care of someone who is still alive although unable to communicate their wishes.
What Are the Benefits of a Will?
There are a number of benefits to having a will. One of the greatest benefits is that your property will be distributed according to your wishes. Without a will, the court will make these decisions for you. This can lead to disagreements between your loved ones and can even result in your property being distributed to people you didn't intend to receive it.
How Long Does a Will Last?
Wills don't expire, but they can become out of date depending on your life situation. For example, you could sell an asset you had left to someone in your will but never updated the will to reflect the sale. This is why it's best practice to review your will every three to five years and update it. Also, if you experience a big life change, like a divorce or child birth, you should update your will.
