A Gentle Nudge
Most of us can use a nudge now and then to do something we know we should do -- like writing or updating a will. We find it easier to procrastinate than to accomplish the task, and a good nudge can get us moving in the right direction. If this describes you, consider this little article a nudge.
The reason we want to nudge you to obtain or update your will is that we have seen the difficulties that arise when a person dies intestate (without a will). We also know that many people who wish to include Compassion & Choices in their will fail to get their wish unless the bequest has been clearly stated in a valid will.
Another reason we want to gently prod you is that we know you will be glad when the job is done. You will have peace of mind about your final affairs -- and you will thank us for the nudge.
One way we can assist you is to make things as easy as possible. We have a variety of informational brochures that will help you in planning your will. They contain basic information that helps you think through the various issues and prepares you for your visit with an estate-planning attorney. The topics of these brochures include: Making a Will, Estate Planning for Women, Distributing Your Estate, Basic Estate Planning, and Estate Planning Strategies.
The main thing is to complete this extremely important matter while you are able to thoughtfully consider the options and make sound decisions.
To receive your free copies of these brochures, print and use the handy response form on page 19 of the PDF of this issue, or contact Jane Sanders, our director of membership at 800-247-7421 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
