What Is a "Last Will & Testament"?

A last will and testament, or "will" as it is commonly called, is a document that contains your wishes and instructions for the administration of your estate in the event that you pass away.

Through a last will and testament, you can address estate issues including:

  • Distribution of your estate - In a will, you can establish specifics regarding how your estate is distributed. You can determine the assets or property that your loved one's receive, and the time at which they receive them.
  • Appointing of an executor - An executor is a person who is in charge of the administration of your estate and the distribution of assets . You can use a will to appoint the person who will act as executor to your estate. If you fail to create a will, or name an executor, a probate court may appoint the first person who requests the responsibility.
  • Estate taxes - A well-executed will may reduce estate taxes, which can prove beneficial to your loved ones.
