Death and taxes are the only thing we can be sure will happen. Drawing up the last testament is low on the bucket list for many young people, but it should not be. You never know what the future has to offer and if you have a young family, your children must be taken care of by a sensible guardian.
If you think all you have to do is write something down on paper, forget it! You must state some points in the Last Testament, and the wording must be correct. There are some things that every sensible person should keep in mind when it comes to preparing the final document of life.
The following should be priority items:
- Define your beneficiaries. Do not use nicknames without their legal identification.
- What property will be included in your estate? Life insurance companies have named beneficiaries of the insurance.
- Who will receive the heirloom? That old ring or gold watch has a significant sentimental value. Be careful who you leave it to.
- If necessary, appoint a guardian. This is important if you have young children. They will need someone to look after their financial affairs and provide for their needs.
- Know the law. Each state has its separate statutes that regulate wills and estates.
- Select performer. The tenant-owner is the one who is to administer the division of property and ensure that the estate transactions are in accordance with the law. This is an important position, and you need to be careful about who you choose.
- Get a good lawyer.
The last point is the most important. The group’s legal plans include writing a final will as one of their services. Nationwide prepaid legal services include final wills in the benefit options for our legal group plan.
We use the best
We are not fans of online templates and think it is better to deal with an experienced lawyer. Countrywide has a nationwide network of lawyers who have extensive knowledge of probate law and how to draw up a will. We have a community lawyer in every nationwide client organization. Members of our group law plan are given priority status and it is easy to arrange a meeting with one of our lawyers.
You can see our lawyer as a legal expert with coaching skills. That person will guide a member of the prepaid legal service plan through the process of compiling a correct and legally binding will. In addition, proposals for the management of estate and property are part of the prepaid legal services provided by a nationwide lawyer.
We understand that this is not an easy task to do. Our lawyers are recruited for their listening ability and empathy and experience. A nationwide attorney will listen carefully to what a plan member wants before doing anything. Everyone is treated with courtesy and respect, no matter what title they have.
It’s about choices
We want to provide our best prepaid legal services and develop a class action plan that every employee can use. We asked the decision makers for a potential customer to look at all our service options. We explain each benefit without trying to market one service over another. The management decides what should be in the final plan and we will provide administration and membership services.
We give a little extra with our group law plan. We send out annual reminders to plan members to update their wills. This is important because time and circumstances can change the text. Going the extra mile is a quality of Countrywide that customers like. If you want to know more about us, you are welcome to contact us as soon as possible. You will be pleasantly surprised at what we can do for your employees.
