Writing a will can be difficult. There are important decisions to be made about what will happen to your belongings and assets in the event of your death and it can be sometimes overwhelming to think about.

Things to Include in a Will

Certain provisions are important to keep in a will because they will ensure that your estate is allocated as you wish it to be. Here is a short list of important things to specify in your will:

  • Who the beneficiaries will be
  • Who will serve as the executor
  • Who will care for minor or other dependents
  • Anyone who should specifically excluded from the will
  • What arrangements should be made for a funeral or memorial service
  • Whether organs are to be donated or offered for research
  • Stipulations limiting the time in which beneficiaries may claim property and assets
  • What will happen if the beneficiaries pass away as well
