Overview

Do you remember where the deed to your house is, what you paid for the painting hanging over your mantle, where your life insurance documents are? Have you photographed your belongings? Have you thought through your estate planning? Does anyone know what to do if something happens to you? Does everyone know what your wishes are?

Life Organizer: The Essential Record Keeper & Estate Planner is the perfect place for storing all essential information, and finding lots of personal planning advice. Learn how an estate plan is, well…planned, and what you need to get started. In one handy location, find reader-friendly explanations, definitions, tips, worksheets and storage space for everything you need to organize your wishes and assets, and get on with your life!

Nancy Randolph Greenyway, the extraordinary co-author of Pass it On: A Practical Approach to the Fears and Facts of Planning Your Estate (Hyperion), combines clear and friendly prose with legal expertise to make Life Organizer the definitive resource for reference, organization, and storage in all matters of basic estate planning.

The organizer is divided into eight sections:
• Family and Beneficiaries
• Personal Considerations
• Property and Investment Records
• Insurance, Retirement and Business
• My Will, Trusts and Gifts
• Health Care Choices
• Final Wishes
• Resources and Advisors

Produced as a three-ring-binder, Life Organizer includes 8 tabs with pockets, 15 plastic sleeves for storing copies of important documents, and 1 sleeve to hold 2 DVDs for photo and video inventory, plus dozens of worksheets, checklists, and pages for contact information of family members and professionals.

Whether you’re a baby boomer planning your estate, parent with a new family, or recent grad just beginning to earn an income, it’s a beautiful and helpful organizer for anyone at any age.

Nancy Randolph Greenway is co-author and primary writer of Pass it On: A Practical Guide to the Fears and Facts of Planning Your Estate (Hyperion, 2001). With a law degree and personal experience in estate matters across many states, Greenway remains uniquely qualified to distill estate-planning concerns faced at any stage of life.
