Wait, what exactly is a will?

You need a will, plain and simple. You can read more about this in our Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Will blog post. First, let’s talk about what a will is. There are many different types of wills. Right now, we are talking about a Last Will and Testament.

  • Helps deliver your wishes after you die.

  • States what you want to happen to your estate.

  • Determines the care of your children.

  • A Last Will and Testament is a legal document. It should be signed and witnessed.

  • Without a Last Will and Testament, decisions about your estate are left in the hands of the state.

You don’t need to spend massive amounts of money to create a Last Will and Testament. There are hundreds of free templates online. We have listed three of them for you here.

If you decide to use a free template or have already created your own Last Will and Testament, that’s great! We are happy you have taken this important step to protect the things and people you care about. Make sure that you have your will signed and witnessed and that the template you downloaded is applying Indiana law.


While a Last Will and Testament is one important step in the estate planning process, it’s not the only step. We have an Estate Planning Checklist blog post you should skim through to make sure all of your bases are covered.
