Want to know more? Here’s a closer look at what you can do with Quicken WillMaker Plus:
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 take care of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law determines these issues. Your will also allows you to name an executor (sometimes called a “personal representative”) to carry out our wishes. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people. With Quicken WillMaker Plus, you can revise and update your will whenever you like.
You can use Quicken WillMaker Plus to give your executor authority over your digital assets, including social media accounts, online banking and more.
Your Health Care Directive. Spare your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry out your instructions:
- Health Care Power of Attorney
Name a trusted person (your "health care agent") to make important medical decisions for you if necessary.
- Living Will
State what types of medical treatment you do or do not want if you are too ill or injured to direct your own care. Your health care providers must do all they can to follow your wishes.
Your Durable Power of Attorney for Finances
A durable power of attorney ensures that someone you trust (called your "agent" or "attorney-in-fact") will be on hand to manage the many practical, financial tasks that will arise if you become incapacitated. For example, bills must be paid, bank deposits must be made and someone must handle insurance and benefits paperwork. In most cases, a durable power of attorney for finances is the best way to take care of tasks like these. You can also give your attorney-in-fact authority over your digital assets.
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.
Documents for Your Executor
Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices and claim forms.
Information for Caregivers and Survivors
Organize your information so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them details about everything from bank accounts, to passwords, to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.
Letter to Survivors
Use the Letter to Survivors to leave your loved ones detailed explanations about your decisions. For example, you may want to let them know why you made certain gifts or named a particular person to be your executor. You can also use your letter to leave some general thoughts about your life.
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 sale, and closing 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.

- Terrific Product for Wills and Personal Legal Documents by Glenn R
I recently purchased Quicken WIllmaker Plus 2017 after having first used its Nolo predecessor over 25 years ago. I'm very pleased with it - I was quickly and easily able to create new wills for my wife and myself in very short period of time. The interface and navigation are simple and easy to use, yet they provide for the optionality that I needed in the will. I have just started to use the living will and power of attorney capabilities. This is a terrific product that makes it easy for anyone to generate their own legal documents in most commonly-occurring circumstances. (Posted on 1/11/2017)

This is my fourth version of WillMaker. All previous three versions have been easy to use and has saveed me much time and money by using it's software instead of hiring a lawyer. I am sure this version of WillMaker 2017 will be the same. (Posted on 1/11/2017)
