 Want to know more? Here’s a deeper look at what you can do with Quicken WillMaker Plus 2013:

 Your Will

The heart of every estate plan is a will, also known as a last will and testament. This legal document puts you in control of who inherits your property and who would assume guardianship of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law will determine these issues. Your will allows you to name an executor (“personal representative”) whose job it is to see that your wishes are carried out. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people. With Quicken WillMaker Plus 2013, you can revise and update your will whenever you like.

 Your Health Care Directive. Spares your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry those wishes:


·          Health Care Power of Attorney
      Permit a loved one to make important medical decisions for you if necessary.

·          Living Will
      Specify whether you want your life prolonged through artificial means in certain circumstances and set out your wishes about specific medical treatments and procedures.

 Your Final Arrangements

Plan a funeral or other ceremony and ease the burden on your loved ones. Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries, and more, and select someone to oversee your final arrangements.

Documents for Your Executor

Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices, claim forms and more.

Information for Caregivers and Survivors

Organize your estate so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them information about everything from bank accounts to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.

Personal Finance Documents

Over a dozen forms let you handle common financial situations, such as lending or borrowing money between friends or family, creating a bill of sales, and ending a credit card account.

Home & Family Documents

Practical forms you can use every day to help run your home and keep your family safe, including authorizations and agreements, promissory notes, limited powers of attorney, and child and elder care forms.

*Estate planning documents not valid in Louisiana or U.S. Territories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful solution to doing it yourself October 15, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I had previously bought the 2007 version and did all my health planning/will/burial/other forms. I unfortunately lost the disc. Just wanted to get an updated version due to changes that took place in my life. This new 2013 version has all the same forms and more BUT updated. This product is soooo easy to use and saved me a lot of money as I could do it myself . . .no attorney! It has both federal & state forms along with lots of forms for other uses as you go through life. I don't feel it's for complicated wills or trusts (especially if wealthy) but for regular people who may have a home or not and have no troubling family or financial issues. I can tell you that all the paperwork was correct, legal, and suitable for everything when my Mom passed away.
Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Painless Legal Documents October 26, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have meant to make a will for a decade. Even started one ... but never finished. This package has not just a Will but various legal documents that you will need that will make life easier on your family. Some of the documents included that can be generated are your Will, Health Care Directive, Health Care Power of Attorney, Living Will, Your Final Arrangements, Documents for Your Executor, Information for Caregivers and Survivors, Personal Finance Documents, Home & Family Documents; and this is not an all inclusive list. If you log onto the companies web site they give you access to a Living Trust. This box set not only came with the software but also a hard copy of the book "The Legal Answer Book for Families."

So now you can quickly and almost painlessly generate your legal documents and save some money. It helped me as the program explains each document and helps you fill out the documents with an onscreen interview process. And if that is not enough you can turn too the book. This product works. I recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nolo Customer Service is Great! November 16, 2012
By edarahk
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I bought this program for one simple reason: To write a revocable living trust.

I messed up on my first attempt at this and unfortunately couldn't go back to the VERY first question, I could change the answers and information in all other portions of the document except the information about wanting to make it an individual or multiperson trust, and if I was married or not.

I was upset because I thought that I blew my only chance to do it right, and sent Nolo an email that simply said:

I messed up on my info, please help, is there anyway you could reset my trust document?

Sure enough, they did just that within a few hours and I recieved an email response from a very helpful customer service rep.
I was able to redo the trust exactly how I wanted it and am very happy with the customer service I received through Nolo.

Length: 3:50 Mins
Quicken WillMaker Plus 2013 is the best version of this software to date. Easy to install and use, it's the most comprehensive, inexpsensive, do-it-yourself kit for all documents related to estate planning out there.

The reasons I think it's so great?

1. It has a 100% Satistfaction Money-Back Guarantee! Nothing to lose on this one.
2. Works with Windows XP SP2, Vista, Win 7 AND Windows 8!
3. Freebies include: e-box with registration "Nolo's Encyclopedia of Everyday Law'. Not necessary for anything you'll be doing, but nice.
4. Book included called 'The Legal Answer Book for Families' is an easy to read, simple guide to general legal issues today including same-sex marriage, elder care, name changes and others.
5. For the little bit of money you spend on this software, you save a ton in legal fees that you'd have to pay an attorney to do it for you.
6. Minimual PC requirements mean that almost anyone; even those with older computers, can use this software to make documents.
7. It's easy to quickly create home and family documents like Temporary Guardianship Authorizations, Pet Care Agreements, and Childcare Agreements.
8. You can create a Bill of Sale, Promissory Notes and Limited Power of Attorney for Finances documents. Very handy!
9. You can have several members of your family using it and it will install on multiple computers.
10. Estate planning documents include: Legal Will (specific to your state), Health Care Directive, Durable Finacial Power of Attorney, Revocation Documents, Property Worksheet, Information for Caregivers and Survivors, Final Arrangements, General Notice of Death (for newspaper), Affidavit of Domicile, and Executor's Checklist.

Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I suppose that I could go through all the options in Quicken WillMaker Plus, but I'd be doing so purely for the purpose of writing an in-depth review. However, my needs are simple. And for me, the bottom line is that those needs were met.

A few years ago, a friend's mother died. Mom had no will. Scott thought that it would be fairly straightforward to deal with her estate, since after all, there were just a few kids and there wasn't all THAT much in the way of assets. But over the course of MONTHS, during which he had to drive to-and-from Mom's city from his own several times, Scott learned just how painful and expensive it could be to die without a will; I heard about it at length. I told myself, "Okay, I'm going to learn from his experience"... and then I didn't do anything about it. It's been a few years, and this has been a Round Tuit I didn't get.

So when I was offered Quicken WillMaker in my Amazon Vine selection, I said Yes. I hoped that it would make it easy for me, the no-legal-genius, to put together a very simple will for my husband and myself. (It's just us and the cats, after all. Nothing fancy.) And I got exactly what I wanted. In fact, for that basic will, it took less than a half hour to put together BOTH our wills. Now all I have to do is print out the documents and get them notarized.

My point here is not depth (which I must leave to someone else) but convenience. The software works like, well, tax software. It asks you questions and you choose or type in the answers. It explains the options when they aren't obvious.
