Session 7

Estate Planning, Giving, and Leaving a Legacy

This session is about Wills and leaving a Legacy. A will is a legal document that states a person’s wishes regarding the transfer of separately-owned property at death, the care of dependents, and the administration of the estate. If an individual dies without a valid will, called intestacy, the laws of the state in which they reside will dictate who gets their property, raises their children, and who will settle the estate. A recent study concluded that 40 percent of the people dying with estates to administer did not have a will. In this session we will discuss: the importance of having a will, having updated and accurate family documents, understanding your homeowners insurance policy, having an accurate household inventory listing, the importance of knowing and maintaining your credit, the importance of tracking your social security information, and knowing what types of documents or family information are considered Vital Family Records, and much more.
