Make a Will While You Are Able

One of the most important decisions anyone can make is committing to write a last will and testament.

A will is part of your legacy. This legal document will ensure that the assets you have accumulated during your lifetime are distributed in accordance with your wishes. You are never too young to begin. Statistics show that 50% of our citizens do not have a will. If a person dies without a will, assets of the decedent are distributed pursuant to the Rules of Intestate Succession.

Take time to plan your estate so that your gifts will have a positive effect for your family and the community. Proper planning could reduce PA Inheritance Taxes and will also help to avoid unnecessary and expensive court proceedings.
