Did you know that August is National Make-A-Will Month? This month was created to encourage every American to learn more about the importance of estate planning — and to create their own will to protect the people they love.

Nearly ⅔ of adults do not have a legal will, and without one, local laws and regulations can dictate how your assets are distributed. Having a plan is the most effective way to ensure your wishes are followed and your loved ones are protected.

To help our Blue Ridge PBS viewers get started, we’re sharing a free estate planning tool, courtesy of our partnership with FreeWill. It’s a simple, accessible, and 100% free way to create your will for Make-a-Will Month!
