    Here is more about the documents you can make with Quicken WillMaker Plus:

    Your Will. The heart of every estate plan is a will, also known as a last will and testament. This legal document puts you in control of who inherits your property and who would take care of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law determines these issues. Your will also allows you to name an executor (sometimes called a "personal representative") to carry out our wishes. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people.

    Your Health Care Directive. Spare your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry out your instructions. Includes a power of attorney for health care and a living will.

    Your Durable Power of Attorney for Finances. A durable power of attorney ensures that someone you trust (called your "agent" or "attorney-in-fact") will be on hand to manage the many practical, financial tasks that will arise if you become incapacitated.

    Your Final Arrangements. Plan a funeral or other ceremony and ease the burden on your loved ones. Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries, and more.

    Documents for Your Executor. Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices, and claim forms.
    Information for Caregivers and Survivors. Organize your information so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them details about everything from bank accounts, to passwords, to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.

    Letter to Survivors. Use the Letter to Survivors to leave your loved ones detailed explanations about your decisions. For example, you may want to let them know why you made certain gifts or named a particular person to be your executor. You can also use your letter to leave some general thoughts about your life.

    Personal Finance Documents. Over a dozen forms let you handle common financial situations, such as lending or borrowing money between friends or family, creating a bill of sale, and closing a credit card account.

    Home & Family Documents. Practical forms you can use every day to help run your home and keep your family safe, including authorizations and agreements, promissory notes, limited powers of attorney, and child and elder care forms.

  • Estate planning documents not valid in Louisiana, U.S. Territories or Canada.

  • What's New
    We have improved formatting in several of the documents. None of these changes affect the legal validity of documents you may have already created with the program.
