If you are over the age of 25, I assume you’ve thought about setting up a will. Since this isn’t something that’s often discussed, many questions arise. “Where do I go to get a will? Do I have to pay a lawyer to set it up? Doesn’t it cost over $300 to set up a will?
I have to admit, my wife and I have not set up a will yet. When we got married, we owned a $3,000 car and had a mountain of student loan debt – we didn’t feel that there was any real reason to set up a will. But, now that we’ve paid off all of our debts and are getting ready to purchase a house, we suddenly feel as though we should put together some documentation in the event that the unthinkable happens.
I Found a Deal on Wills
Sometimes, while at work, I listen to financial radio stations – hoping to find a nugget of financial information that I hadn’t heard before. About a week ago, I was listening to The Dave Ramsey Show, and I caught that nugget I’d been listening for!
Since Dave believes very strongly in setting up a will for your family, he has partnered up with USlegalforms.com and together they offer some great deals on wills.
This is the simplest form of will, but for $15, it may be all you need to provide your family with peace of mind. Here is what will be included:
- Who will be in charge of your estate as your Personal Representative/Executor;
- What powers your Personal Representative/Executor will have;
- Who will inherit your property; and
- How your property will ultimately be transferred to your beneficiaries.
This type of will includes all of the details mentioned above (in the last will), plus it offers these additional features:
Living Will – this is a legal document that will allow you to state your wishes in regards to life-prolonging medical treatments.
Power of Attorney – this document allows you to appoint a person or organization to handle your affairs while unavailable or unable to do so.

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
