FREE WILL Frequently asked questions
Why is FreeWill free?
FreeWill's no-charge product is supported by nonprofit organizations. Many of our will-makers choose to leave a portion of their estate to charity, and we hope you'll consider doing the same. FreeWill never sells your personal data to third-parties. For more details on our commitment to data security, please read our privacy and security policies.
Do I need a will?
A will is important for everyone and can be useful regardless of estate size. It’s a way to support the people and causes important to you. Having a will ensures that your wishes are known, saving your loved ones the stress and cost of intestate probate proceedings.
Does FreeWill offer other end-of-life planning documents?
Yes! We have advance healthcare directives (also known as healthcare proxies or living wills), and durable financial powers of attorney as well. All are free to create.
Can I change my will?
Yes! Your circumstances and wishes may change after you’ve completed your will. If that happens, you can make a new will to replace your old one. All you have to do is sign the new will with witnesses and remember to destroy the previous one.
How to make a will legal
“Executing your will” is the process of making it legally valid. While the exact requirements can vary from state to state, the process itself is generally fairly simple. There are two main conditions you must meet to execute your will: you must be of sound mind, and you must sign your will in front of two witnesses.
