FreeWill.com Website: No Cost Resource For Retirees

By Richard Reider, ARC Gift Planning Program Manager

As you know, being prepared is a key principle of the American Red Cross. It is important to plan and get one’s financial affairs in order and the Red Cross has partnered with FreeWill.com so that you can prepare your will online – entirely for free.

FreeWill is a secure, online tool that will take you through the will preparation process step by step. If you have a simple estate, you can print your legal will to be signed and witnessed. If you have a more complex estate, the same tools will help you document your wishes and offer guidance in finding a qualified attorney near you to finalize your plans. 

The site also allows you to set up an Advance Healthcare Directive and Durable Financial Power of Attorney.  A healthcare directive reflects the healthcare decisions you would make if you become unable to speak for yourself. The financial power of attorney appoints someone to act on your behalf with respect to financial matters should you become unable to do so.

Your will is one of the most personal and important financial documents in your life. As you go through this process, Red Cross hopes you will consider including the American Red Cross for a charitable gift, as an organization that makes a difference in the lives of so many people.
