Financial Advisor Talking To Senior Couple At Home

The many people and organizations who help support our work make it possible for us to help people with Parkinson’s live well TODAY. Our community has helped us plan for a better future for people living with Parkinson’s, and we want to return the favor. Next week, October 18-24, is National Estate Planning Awareness Week, and it provides an opportunity to plan for your own future and that of your loved ones.

Through our partnership with FreeWill, you can complete an estate plan for free this week (or any time). Get started today.

Who is Estate Planning for?

Estate planning is an important task that many people may avoid because they don’t know where to start. Creating a will can seem scary, complicated, and expensive, but is a powerful way to protect your future. 

National Estate Planning Awareness Week serves to show that estate planning does not have to be overwhelming or difficult. Everyone needs a plan so they can:

  • Protect the family, friends, and pets they care most about
  • Plan beneficiaries for their assets (including their IRA, 401(k), or assets passed on outside of a will)
  • Support the causes and communities they love

An estate plan also grants you agency over the health and safety decisions of your future. As you provide hope and security to those living with Parkinson’s, we encourage you to do the same for yourself.

If you don’t have an up-to-date plan, we invite you to use FreeWill’s free, online services. FreeWill’s self-help solutions for common estate planning needs have helped more than 350,000 people write a legal will completely free of charge, and they make it easy to create other important estate planning documents so you are prepared for your future.
