What is a Last Will & Testament?

A last will and testament is a legal document stating what happens to your assets upon the event of your death. A will is generally made up of three or four parts. The first section is the designation of an executor, which is someone who carries out the instructions of the will. The next section regards beneficiaries, or the recipients who are inheriting assets described in the will. The third section contains the instructions for how and when beneficiaries will receive the assets. The fourth section names guardians for any minor children, but is only necessary for parents and legal guardians.

Wills can be confusing and time-consuming to complete yourself, but hiring a professional to handle the hassle may be in your best interest.
