Personal Finance

Everybody wants financial independence. And whether you're well into your career or just starting to put money away, covering all the legal bases allows you to spend more time building your savings and enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Successful personal finance planning begins with keeping track of the money that comes in and the money that goes out. There are a number of legal forms available to help you maintain, verify and manage your personal finance records. Like if you're applying for credit or loans, you might be asked to fill out a personal financial statement, and insurance companies will ask for a home inventory worksheet to cover your valuables. Not only do these records aid transactions, they also help you stay on top of your money.

When unloading and transferring assets, some legal forms keep everything on the up and up. Selling your car to someone? You'll need an automobile bill of sale form to make it official. Want to transfer your 401K? Just send a 401K rollover request form to the administrator.
