Where Should I Store My Will?

Where Should I Store My Will?

Your Will is an important document and should be stored safely. Although the office will keep a copy of your Will, you have the only original. The choice of where to keep your Will is yours. You can keep the Will in a safe place at home or you can place it in a safety deposit box. However you could be burglarized, a fire could destroy it, or it may be difficult to locate. If you store it in your safety deposit box, your heirs will need to obtain a court order to gain access to your safety deposit box after your death if they are not listed as joint owners of the box.
