Everyone Should Have an Estate Plan

Whether you are a single person who needs help drafting a will, a young couple looking for ways to protect your children, or a senior citizen approaching retirement, Willis Law can help you plan accordingly for the future. During the estate planning process, we’ll offer the personalized advice and one-on-one attention you deserve.

Our firm can assist you with:

Pensions & Retirement Benefits

One of the most important things you can address when planning for the future is how your pension benefits will be handled upon your death.

Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), retirement plans must have a survivor benefit. This benefit allows the surviving spouse of a plan beneficiary to receive benefits if their spouse dies before retirement. The surviving spouse will also be entitled to a portion of the beneficiary’s pension if they die after retirement.

In addition to pension benefits, other retirement benefits that should be addressed in your estate plan include:

  • 401(k) accounts
  • 403(b) accounts
  • IRA (individual retirement account)
  • ESOP (employee stock ownership plan)
  • PERS (public employees' retirement system pension)

Elder Law Services

Elder law is in place to protect the rights and interests of senior citizens. At Willis Law, we offer comprehensive elder law services to ensure that you or your loved ones are positioned for success during those golden years.

We can help you:

  • Establish advance health care directives and medical powers of attorney
  • Draft durable powers of attorney
  • Draft a living will to outline your wishes regarding end-of-life medical care or treatment if you are incapacitated
  • Address Medicaid and nursing home planning
