Examples of What A Will Can Do

  • Name your beneficiaries who are to receive your assets at death, including Real Estate (land and buildings), Bank Accounts, Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Annuities, Retirement Accounts, Furniture, Cars, Boats and anything else that you own solely in your own name –with no named beneficiary or co-owner.
  • Provide that younger beneficiaries shall not have complete access to their inheritance until they reach a designated age, such as 21 or 25 (for example).
  • When you have children who have not yet reached the age of 18, your Will can nominate an individual to be the legal Guardian of your children and/or their property. Note: The currently preferred method for naming a Guardian is to do so in a separately executed document, in which you name a Standby Guardian.
  • Provide that the inheritance of any beneficiary is intended to supplement, and not diminish or supplant, any government benefit programs that your beneficiaries are receiving, such as SSI.
