Here’s more about the documents you can make with Quicken WillMaker Plus 2019:
The heart of every estate plan is a will, also known as a last will and testament. This legal document puts you in control of who inherits your property and who would take care of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law determines these issues. Your will also allows you to name an executor (sometimes called a “personal representative”) to carry out our wishes. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people.
Your Revocable Living Trust Use a living trust to save your loved ones time and money after you die. Like a will, you can use a living trust to determine who gets your property, and the property that passes through your living trust can be transferred directly to beneficiaries without going through costly and time-consuming probate procedures. Compared to wills, living trusts tend to be more complicated to set up and maintain, but many people find that the benefits of having a trust outweigh the extra work. If you make a living trust, you will still need a back-up will.
Your Health Care Directive
Spare your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care (living will) and naming someone to carry out your instructions (power of attorney for health care).
Your Durable Power of Attorney for Finances
A durable power of attorney ensures that someone you trust (called your “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) will be on hand to manage the many practical, financial tasks that will arise if you become incapacitated. For example, bills must be paid, bank deposits must be made and someone must handle insurance and benefits paperwork. In most cases, a durable power of attorney for finances is the best way to take care of tasks like these.
Your Final Arrangements
Plan a funeral or other ceremony and ease the burden on your loved ones. Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries and more.
Documents for Your Executor
These forms, checklists, instructions and resources will help your executor with the difficult job of wrapping up your estate after you die.
Information for Caregivers and Survivors
Organize your information so that your survivors don’t have to. Use these documents to give them details about everything from bank accounts, to passwords, to the names of people you’d like contacted in the event of your illness or death.
Letter to Survivors
Use the Letter to Survivors to leave your loved ones detailed explanations about your decisions. For example, you may want to let them know why you made certain gifts or named a particular person to be your executor. You can also use your letter to leave some general thoughts about your life.
Personal Finance Documents
Over a dozen forms let you handle common financial situations, such as lending or borrowing money between friends or family, creating a bill of sale, and authorizing someone to take care of a specific financial task on your behalf.
Home & Family Documents
Practical forms you can use every day to help run your home and keep your family safe, including authorizations, agreements, and child and elder care forms.
