Here are in-depth details about what you can do with Quicken WillMaker Plus:

Your Will
Provide for family, friends and charities. Name a personal guardian to care for young children. Specify the executor (or "personal representative") of your estate. Select a trusted person to manage property left to young people. Revise and update your will whenever you like.

Your Living Trust
Make a basic trust, whether you're married or single. If married, you can create a AB trust (or bypass trust) and spare your heirs from potentially heavy estate taxes. Create subtrusts for minor children and young adults. Name custodians for property left to children. Change or revoke your trust at any time.

Your Living Will (Health Care Directive)
Outline medical procedures that you want provided or withheld, if you can't speak for yourself. Specify whether or not you want your life prolonged through artificial means. Appoint someone to make sure your wishes are carried out.

Your Financial Power of Attorney
Name someone to make your financial decisions, in case you are medically incapacitated-and appoint an alternate in case that person cannot serve. Don't worry, you can grant as much authority as you wish.

Your Final Arrangements
Plan a funeral or other ceremony. Clarify whether you want a cremation or burial. Select someone to oversee your final arrangements-and more!

Documents for Your Executor
Make sure your executor ("personal representative" in some states) has all the forms and instructions he or she needs to do the job: Checklists, letters, notices, claim forms-and more.

Personal Finance Documents
Over a dozen forms that let you handle financial situations you might face on any given day, such as disputing a credit card charge, lending or borrowing money to friends or family, creating bills of sale-and more!

Home & Family Documents
Whether you need to authorize someone to travel with your child to another country, want to lend your car to a friend, or create an agreement with a trusted person to take care of your elderly parent, Quicken WillMaker Plus can handle all these family situations-and many more! Estate planning documents not valid in Louisiana.
