“August is National Make-a-Will Month. For a limited time have a Standard Will created by a specialized attorney for no additional charge through LegalShield. That’s a saving of $300.00 or more in legal fees,” states Frank Arbizu, LegalShield, Employee Benefits, Small Business and Broker Division Specialist.
LegalShield is one of North America’s leading providers of legal safeguards and protection against identity theft for individuals, families and small businesses. The 46-year-old company has more than 1,753,000 members that are covered by its legal and identity theft plans.
IDShield provides identity theft protection to more than one million individuals. LegalShield and IDShield serve more than 141,000 businesses.
Plans are available for individuals, families and businesses for only a few cents a day.
“Additional family members covered under the LegalShield plan can have their own will created for a one-time fee of only $20.00 each.”
“Who should have a will? The answer is simple, everyone! But, according to surveys, up to 75% of people do not have a will with the common misconception it is only the rich who need one.
“Creating a will is not the most pleasant of tasks to perform, but one of the most important. It is a task that is easily postponed.”
Dying without a will leaves it to the laws of your state to determine how your property is distributed. These laws vary greatly depending on your marital status and if children are involved.
Property includes any bank accounts, securities, real estate, and other assets you own at the time of death. Real estate owned in a different state than where you reside will be handled under the laws of the state where the property is located.
Arbizu continues, “An experienced LegalShield attorney will help you determine the best way to manage your estate—your money, property and belongings—both during your lifetime and after your death.
“This may include creating binding documents to determine who controls your finances and medical plans, or helping ensure the transfer of your assets to family members or charities.
“As a LegalShield member, you can get assistance with any legal issue involving your will, trust, power of attorney, or details concerning a guardianship or conservatorship. Your LegalShield team is available to help every step of the way with your Standard Will at no additional charge.
“One story I heard was where a grandfather had agreed to cover his son-in-law’s college tuition. After the grandfather’s death, his heirs declined to pay for the son-in-law’s bills because he wasn’t named in the will. Very sad!
“Don’t let something similar happen to you. With a professionally prepared will, at no additional charge, your final wishes can be carried out. Special items can be passed along to the person you want to have it and not left up for grabs.
“You’re never too young or too old to have a will. The point is you need one,” concludes Arbizu.
