What Is a Will?

A basic understanding of what a will includes will help you better plan for your family’s future when you have died. A will is defined as a written document that designates who will take control of your estate – property and finances not passed to specific beneficiaries – after you die. In addition to identifying who will control and distribute your estate, a will designates who will care for your children after you pass if they are still minors and your spouse is incapable of providing care.

Individuals who are planning their estate may want to include a living will – which is different than a standard will. A living will is a separate document that provides you with the opportunity to note your written preferences for potential life-prolonging medical treatment at the end of your life. The living will allows you to declare your medical wishes for the use of medical professionals if you are in a terminal condition and you cannot speak for yourself.
