Did you know that 20,000 Wills are created every month with Rocket Lawyer alone? Although that sounds like a lot, the fact is that 57% of adults in the U.S. haven’t created their Wills, according to our survey. If you’re one of those people, you need to know that a Legal Will is an essential document for protecting your family now and in the future, and it can save your loved ones needless frustration and legal costs. To get the word out, we’ve announced that August is national “Make a Will Month.”

In recognition of Make a Will Month 2011, we have an extra incentive for you to start your estate planning. Simply visit RocketLawyer.com to make a free Legal Will with no obligation, and no credit card required! It’s quick, easy, and completely free, so now’s the time to get it done and have peace of mind knowing that your family is protected.
For those of you who have created your Will, congratulations! You’re ahead of the crowd. But remember to review your Will once a year, and update it if necessary. For example, if you’ve been married, divorced, or had a baby since you wrote or last updated your Will, it’s time for an update. And while you’re squaring away your estate plan, why not think about completing a Power of Attorney?
If you have questions about creating your Will, visit our Estate Planning Legal Center, read our Estate Planning Guide, or Ask A Lawyer. If you have an estate worth 5 million dollars or more, your estate may be subject to federal estate taxes, so it’s recommended to consult with an estate planning attorney who can help you plan accordingly.
