Most people won’t be thinking about their death. But once in a blue moon, we somehow worry about the consequences of our premature death. That’s why we have a WILL, especially for those with more assets (or liabilities) or young children.

By writing a WILL, we have stored aside a golden key for our heirs to unlocked our assets in the future. The best benefit of all is the convenience and preservation we hope that a WILL can do for our family, when it needs to.

If you have engaged a professional will-writer to help you to plan your WILL, it is likely that you will receive a yearly reminder and asset inventory booklet. I had shared about the necessity to rewrite a will before. From that article, I got a response from Ina who asked for a template of my personal assets inventory spreadsheet.
