Leave a legacy with your will
Did you know only about 33% of American adults have a will or living trust? That means two out of every three people do not have a will!
For the past year we have partnered with FreeWill to bring you the opportunity to create a lasting will. Just like establishing a power of attorney or securing life insurance, making a will is just one item often pushed aside.
We hope you will take advantage of FreeWill as a resource to establish your legacy, and care for your family, friends and community.
Lynne Toseff, longtime Society of St. Vincent de Paul volunteer and donor, used FreeWill to start her will-making process.
Lynne Toseff (right), longtime Society of St. Vincent de Paul volunteer and donor, shares why she decided to start her will with FreeWill:
- No-cost: “I decided to use FreeWill because it was offered and it was free. I wanted to get organized and all of the necessary forms were there online.”
- Simple: “The process wasn’t too long or complicated and I was able to name my power of attorney and medical power of attorney to give my family security.”
- Protective: She wants to continue providing for her family, “I want to be able to show my children what they are getting and show them the completed will.”
- Urgent: “I had been procrastinating and wanted to finish the will. The longer you ponder something, the less likely you want to do it, but the more important it gets; especially in making things better for the family.”
