How Can a Will Benefit You?

A will is a legal document that outlines a person’s wishes for distributing their assets and property after death. 

Having a will in place can be extremely beneficial for: 

  • Reducing conflict between surviving family members and other beneficiaries.
  • Naming guardians who will care and provide for children.
  • Naming an executor who will manage a decedent’s estate.
  • Planning to minimize estate taxes and maximize the remaining inheritance for beneficiaries.
  • Making charitable contributions for causes that were meaningful to the decedent. 

Above all, having a will in place can help families avoid a great deal of strife and give people peace of mind knowing their loved ones will be taken care of.

The Difference Between Wills and Trusts

Trusts and wills are important estate planning tools with similar purposes but many key differences. One of the main differences concerns probate, which is the court-supervised process of settling an estate and distributing assets to heirs. It can take a significant amount of time and money. Wills go through probate, while trusts do not. 

Additional differences include: 

  • Wills are typically easier to change, while trusts can be much more expensive and complicated to alter. 
  • A person cannot name a guardian through a trust like they can with a will. 
  • Generally, trusts are private, and wills are public. 
  • Trusts can be effective immediately after a person pens and signs them. 
  • Trusts can protect assets from creditors.
