So now we will be talking a bit about Wills.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document stating the distribution of property after death. A list of names of one or more individuals as beneficiaries or charities. It can also include the care of minor children. It declares your intentions of what specifically you would want done to your possessions and wealth.

There are 11 types of wills.

  • Joint Will
  • Attested Will
  • Living Will
  • Video Will
  • Mutual Will
  • Conditional Will
  • Testamentary Trust Will
  • Pour-Over Will
  • Trust Will
  • Mirror Will
  • Holographic will

Making a will gives you sole discretion over the distribution of your assets including your digital assets.
