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

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 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.

Also, use Quicken WillMaker Plus 2017 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.

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

Great product and easy to use! by Anonymous
I have used other products and this is by far the best and most convenient. It's now available for Mac's and that is very appreciated. Download, fill out the information and you now have the documents needed.
Well done! (Posted on 1/14/2017)

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)

Willmaker 2017 review. by Anonymous
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)

Poor design by Anonymous
Poor design from a security standpoint, you must be an administrator on the computer to run this product which in this day and age of hackers and security breaches is about 10 years behind the present design of software. (Posted on 1/11/2017)

Review by Anonymous
I am a long time user of Quicken WillMaker, but have been mostly impressed with the support that I got with Quicken WillMaker 2017. I recently changed from one computer to another, and in the process I some way corrupted my previous version in the transition. I could not retrieve any of my previous file. After an email to Nolo Support I received a reply email with a step by step instructions on how to retrieve all my old files. Worked great. (Posted on 1/2/2017)

Easy to use by Anonymous
WillMaker is helping us accomplish one of our goals for the year - to get our finances in order. It's really easy to use, and I like that it has so many related documents about health and finances. (Posted on 12/29/2016)

One day I might be able to write about the program... by Anonymous
I can't really review the program as after ordering it 3 weeks earlier I still haven't got the package. I have ordered computers, phones and other equipment from China and received them within 3 days. This delivery service redefines the term 'snail mail'. (Posted on 12/21/2016)

Very Poor by Anonymous
This was, in my opinion, not the quality represented! There were VERY limited choices for beneficiaries and, as grandparents, was completely inadequate for our needs. Complete waste of money and wish we could get ours back. (Posted on 12/21/2016)

Excellent Product by Anonymous
I just received WillMaker last week. It has been very easy to use; walking me through everything that I need to consider and allowing me to input the information I want. I can make adjustments/additions easily. It have been a load off my mind to get this done. (Posted on 12/21/2016)

Good product-BAD delivery. by Anonymous
4 Stars, with one reservation. DELIVERY TIME SUCKS! If you order it on CD it takes three (3) WEEKS to get it! Nolo says they send it media rate, which can be four (4) weeks. And, the label shows "USPS EXPEDITED NON BPM/UM". This is the 3rd update I have purchased! Absolutely no reason to ruin a good product with this snail sloooow delivery. (Posted on 12/21/2016)

Works like a charm! Easy to use and the walk-through format makes it really easy. Best of all, you get to revise it until it is the way you want it. If there is a change to any of the other individuals involved, it is quite easy to re-define roles. GREAT PRODUCT. (Posted on 12/5/2016)

Excellent media. Never fails. (Posted on 12/2/2016)

Easy, thorough, clearly explained. Great product! by Anonymous
Used Willmaker several times before it became a Quicken product and was always pleased but this latest version is easier, more thorough and very clear. A wealth of supplemental information was as clearly explained as humanly possible. And I got something a little extra--confidence that it is being done right. (Posted on 12/2/2016)

Limits by Anonymous
Easy and thorough however, it is limited to family members use. I bought it to help a friend set up a will and wanted to update my own will also. I was unable to do so.
Another problem occurred when we wrote the will in AZ for a CO resident and the notary page printed out for a Colorado county. Solved the problem with a lineup and initial. (Posted on 11/25/2016)

Really easy to use and so much better than sitting in a lawyer's office which takes time and a lot more money.

Great Program by Anonymous
It is a very good program - the only thing is, when I wanted to print just one form , it printed the whole category. Guess I don't know how to do that. All is good, I finished filling it out and all seems intact. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 11/21/2016)
