September is National Preparedness Month

Most of us don't like to think about writing a will, but the best way to protect your assets and provide for your heirs is to do proper planning while you can.

Cascade offers an Online Will Program to its plan members. This self–help, interactive program provides members with a resource to privately create their own state–specific will, in an online, secure environment. Members enter the members–only website and then follow the prompts for choosing the Will format that best suits the members' personal situation. Members then proceed to build their own wills, which they can download and print for signature purposes. Complete instructions on the proper signing of the will and specific witnesses requirements are included and must be followed in order for the will to be valid. The Online Will Program is valid in 49 States (the only exception is Louisiana).  
No attorney or assistance is involved in this program. The individual member makes all of the necessary decisions to complete the Will, including the selection of the specific forms. If a member is uncertain about any form or question involved in this self–help program, the member should consult with an estate planning attorney.
