What is an Ethical Will?
What is an ethical will? It is a separate document from your living will, and it shares your important values, religious beliefs, life lessons, and blessings with your family members. An ethical will can be in written or video form, and is something that can be shared during your lifetime as a way of drawing family members closer together. It could also be one of the most meaningful gifts you leave for family members when you pass away.
There are other ways to leave a positive legacy, such as providing funds for activities that create positive experiences for your beneficiaries that enhance their wellbeing. Although providing financial security for family members and loved ones is clearly a positive goal, you can be deliberate and thoughtful about your estate planning, setting aside money for meaningful experiences such as family trips, schooling, or volunteer activities, that will allow your beneficiaries to flourish and develop their strengths and interests.
We can help you think through and identify the ways you can incorporate positivity into your estate planning, which will provide you with the confidence and peace of knowing that you are not only providing your family with financial security, but also that you are leaving a positive legacy that will promote your loved ones’ physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing and future success.
