So what ACTUALLY happens if you don't have a will?

I’ve written once or twice about why you need a will, and I’m sure you’ve heard about celebrities like Aretha Franklin or Prince who died without wills. It might be obvious why the ultra-rich should’ve had the foresight to put a will in place. But what exactly happens to us regular folk if we don’t have wills?

A power of attorney is a document a person can use to give a trusted family member or friend the power to make financial transactions and other decisions on his or her behalf.

But here are a few uses of the power of attorney that are good for just about everyone. 1. Financial Transactions for Your College Aged Kids The old “as long as I’m paying the bills” may work with the kids when they’re home on break or calling you on the phone from their college or university about how the car (you paid for) needs to…Read More
