Estate Planning

Whether your assets are few or many, and no matter how young or old you are, it is important to have an estate plan. A will is one of the simplest ways to ensure that your intentions will be honored in the event of your passing. This legal document states your wishes about who will inherit your property, who will be the guardian of your children, and who will manage your estate. Without a will, those decisions will be left to the state.

A good estate plan will provide for and protect your family. The Wills Planner will help you conveniently and quickly gather the information you need to prepare your plan. When completed, the Wills Planner will provide you with a detailed report to share with your attorney, as well as a convenient way to update your financial and family information annually. And rest assured, no one but yourself will know that you used this software, not even Michigan Tech. While the Online Wills Planner is located on the Advancement webpage, please know that we are simply offering it to Michigan Tech employees as a service.
