Why You Need a Will
People often think that a will is for the wealthy, but the fact is that anyone can benefit from having a will, regardless of their assets and property. Moreover, even if you are still young and healthy, you never know what the future holds, so putting this important safeguard in place for your loved ones can spare them the difficulties of determining how your assets should be distributed.
Here are some other important reasons why you may need a will:
- If there is someone in your family whom you do not want to inherit, you can express this in your will.
- If you have minor children and their other parent is already deceased, you can identify who will care for them. Otherwise, the court will assign a guardian.
- You can give charitable donations and gifts, effectively offsetting estate taxes.
- Your beneficiaries will access your assets faster and with fewer obstacles.
If you die without a will, or intestate, the state will oversee the distribution of your assets, which generally adheres to a very specific formula. Dying intestate can potentially have serious tax consequences as well, which can further burden your loved ones during this overwhelming experience.
