Good morning Dinks. We are all working hard, living on less, watching our budget and saving money – but let me ask you a question, what are you saving for? This week I discovered that one of my co-workers – who is married with three kids – does not have a Last Will and Testament. He has a house and a family but he doesn’t have a Will in case something happens to him or his wife. As a financial planner I told him that he should have a Will to make sure that his last wishes are followed and his response was “having a Will is bad luck”.
Making final plans is good financial sense
I don’t think that having a Last Will and Testament is bad luck; actually it’s a smart financial strategy to ensure that all of your hard earned money is disbursed according to your wishes. When you think about it, not having a Will isn’t bad luck – it’s a really bad idea.
I tried to explain to my co-worker that having a Will can take care of his family if something bad happens to him. My co-workers response was why do you have a Will? You don’t even have kids. That is true, I don’t have kids – but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a family. Kids or no kids my boyfriend and I still have final wishes.
Where do you keep your Will?
Some of us go the traditional route and visit our Notary to create a Will. Some of us write our own Will on a pen and paper and some of us are moving into the digital age with an electronic record of our personal information. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all of your assets in one place along with permissions to your accounts and other legacy information, just in case something bad happens? Allow me to introduce BestBequest.com.
Best Bequest is the world’s first digital legacy vault. It’s a website that allows you to safely store personal documents, pictures, videos and more. BestBequest.com allows you to determine who has access to your digital assets, including social media and email accounts, especially after any life-altering events. If something bad should ever happen to you or your spouse it’s important to make sure that your personal information is safe and that your last wishes are carried out.
Best Bequest can help you and your spouse prepare for any life-changing events if one of you should get sick or pass away. BestBequest.com is easy to use – it’s like using online budgeting software, but instead of tracking your spending you are organizing your personal, legal and financial life.
In an age when we are all moving towards digitally storing our personal information leaving a virtual legacy with Best Bequest is a safe and sound idea. If ever you have a flood or fire you don’t have to worry about your information being lost or damaged, it will all be safely stored online. Now doesn’t that sound like a service you want to have?!
