When Should I Write a Will?

Here Are Seven Guide Points:

  1. It's been a while - shifts in priorities or even the law itself.
  2. Home and personal possessions - who do you name as your beneficiaries.
  3. Business - what happens when you are no longer there?
  4. Children and Grandchildren - is there anything you would like to leave them.
  5. Relationships - marriage, divorce, remarriage
  6. Accumulated investments and assets - (tangible and digital) *see below*
  7. Turning 18 - this is when you can legally write a valid will.

What Are Your Assets?

When you're younger, you may not have many assets, but you may have some savings, heirlooms, a car, or even a house.

Covering digital assets may be especially important. Your will can include access to photos, blogs, music, movies, video games, PayPal accounts, and other digital aspects of your life.
