Why should I write a will?

Three main reasons you should make a will:​

1. It makes things far easier for your friends or family to deal with the administrative process when you die. Without a will, this process can be time consuming and stressful.

2. If you don’t have one, your possessions will be shared among your loved ones in a standard way defined by the state laws, which is not necessarily what you might want.

3. It’s especially important to write a will if you have family members who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave anything to people outside of your immediate family.
