I responded to the email from the Davis Phinney Foundation… and was so impressed by the results I got… I simply had to share.
“Here at the Davis Phinney Foundation, we are making the most of the support our community continues to provide. We wouldn’t be able to deliver our education, community outreach, and quality of life programs without you. In thanks we want to help you accomplish an essential task during this special month: creating or updating your will, trust or estate plans to protect what’s important to you.”
“August marks National Make-A-Will Month, giving you a special opportunity to think about the things in your life you wish to protect now and forever. Thanks to our partnership with FreeWill, hundreds of members of our community have completed their wills. You can join them by starting or updating your plans with the free online estate planning tool that makes it easy to update and complete your legal will or trust, all at no cost.”
Davis Phinney Foundation partnered with FreeWill to allow you to create your legacy in 20 minutes and ensure peace of mind and security for you and your loved ones.
If you don’t have time to complete filling out the information now, I encourage each of you to go to the website and start the process… at https://wwwfreewill.com/ It has a person add a little information and then click on save. Once you have saved it, your email is the login to re-access it. The first time you attempt to log back in it gives you a place to set your password. They encouraged us to tell as many people about this tool as we’d like to. Once you have gone through the program, saving as you go, you can go back through and edit or correct.
Ours were pretty simple… and the final document that it produced with all the legaleaze and lines for signatures and notary’s signing and verifying was 15 pages. for those with under aged children, you would have more to complete, indicating guardianship choices, etc. so probably even more than 15 pages.’
Another cool thing about it is. your account is online and you can simply update it, if you have an address change, add a member to the family, or any number of decision changes. Then reprint it, get it notarized and destroy the earlier version.
