Who Needs a Will?

Anyone 18 years or older needs to have a will. You can create a very simple document for a will, including the most important things to you and what should happen with these items. The document needs to be signed, witnessed and notarized. The original document needs to be stored where it can be found upon your death because a copy does not count as your will.

A few suggestions to ensure the original will is found, you may store a copy of a will in your personal files with an attached note stating where the original will is located.  If an attorney creates your will, he/she will usually hold the original for you, if  asked.   A local bank’s trust department will also hold the original for you.  These services are usually free to you.
