Select Beneficiaries

Selecting the beneficiaries of your will is a crucial step in the process. It's important to think carefully about who you would like to receive your assets when you pass away and to make sure your wishes are respected. Beneficiaries can include family members, friends, charitable organizations, or even pets — so it’s important to choose wisely and ensure that your assets are distributed fairly.

Sign Your Will

It is essential that you sign your will once it has been written in order to make it legally valid and enforceable. This must be done in the presence of at least two witnesses who are not beneficiaries to ensure the will is upheld.

Review and Update Your Will

Take the time to review and revise your will on a regular basis. Your life may change, or your assets may increase or decrease over time, making it crucial to update your will to make sure that it accurately reflects your current wishes and objectives. Your will is the legal document that will dictate how your assets are distributed after you pass, so it needs to be kept up to date with your current wishes and needs.

Finding an estate planning attorney, selecting beneficiaries, signing your will, and reviewing and updating your will periodically are all necessary steps to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
