Trust & Will is the easy, fast, and secure way to set up your estate plan online. An estate plan allows you to create a plan to protect you and your loved ones both during lifetime and after death. Estate plans encompass both wills and trusts, which allow individuals to catalog their assets and leave specific gifts, such as money, possessions, and property, to loved ones. It also includes advance medical directives, which outlines what should happen in a medical emergency, and allows individuals to designate a healthcare power of attorney, which gives trusted individuals access to medical records. Lastly, a Trust-based estate plan helps families avoid probate court, a lengthy and costly experience.
"Estate planning has become a priority more than ever before. Despite heightened awareness, increased demand and universal need, research shows a majority of Americans (62%) currently do not have a will," said Victoria Borton, VP Lifestyle Products and Services, AARP Service Inc. "We are pleased that Trust & Will will provide AARP members with exclusive benefits and additional value when considering their estate planning needs."
