FreeWill | JPR

100% Free | 100% Legally Valid | 100% User Friendly

JPR has teamed up with public radio stations across the country to offer FreeWill, an innovative online tool that enables people to easily create a will in about 20 minutes. While most people know that everyone should have a will, surveys show that a majority of people never get around to creating one — largely because of the perception that estate planning is complex and expensive. FreeWill aims to change that by providing a simple, free, user-friendly platform that enables people to proactively manage their financial future, take care of loved ones and contribute to community organizations that reflect their lifelong values.

About FreeWill

FreeWill was founded by two experienced professionals with backgrounds in financial planning and the inner workings of the nonprofit world. FreeWill's goal is to help more people take control of their financial destiny while leaving a legacy that will benefit future generations. To date, people have used FreeWill to commit more than $1.6 billion to nonprofit organizations they care about.

All estate plans made using FreeWill are 100% legal and specifically tailored to your jurisdiction. As soon as you print out your will, and sign it in front of two witnesses, it is a valid legal document.

Safe & Secure

FreeWill uses the latest data encryption technology so that your information is kept secure and private.

Is An Online Will For Everyone?

If you have a particularly large or complicated estate, you may want to have your will drafted by an attorney instead.

FreeWill can still help! At the end of your will-making process, they’ll provide a set of documented wishes to bring to an attorney that may speed up the process. They will also help you find qualified attorneys near you.
