Your Guide to Wills & Trusts
On average, a person works more than forty years to accumulate assets and spends ten years conserving what has been earned but does not spend even two hours to plan for distribution of those assets. The chaos that often occurs following the death of a loved one can be burdensome. This burden can be eased, however, through proper planning.
As a service to you, our Foundation has provided Your Guide to Wills & Truststo help you organize your important information to share your planning quickly, easily and comprehensively with your legal and tax advisors. A key element of proper planning is a Will, and in some cases also a Trust. This workbook is designed to encourage you to think about how you want your assets to be distributed at death and assist you in gathering the information your attorney will need to prepare the documents that accomplish your goals.
