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

    • 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 2019 to give your executor authority over your digital assets, including social media accounts, online banking and more.

    • 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.
    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Living Trust: Ensure that your property bypasses lengthy and expensive probate proceedings.

    • 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.

Review by KERRY V.
WAS EASY TO USE AND THE EXTRA FORMS WERE USEFUL. (Posted on 10/18/2018)

Satisfied Customer by Brenda P.
I really love your software. It was easy to use and lets me update documents as needed. I am glad I made the purchase. (Posted on 10/8/2018)

Very Satisfied Customer by Keith G.
Well-organized and easy to use. If you’ve used TurboTax, you’ll feel right at home with the layout. It provides a step-by-step guide to preparing your entire estate plan. I used it to create a will, living trust, advanced health care directive and power-of-attorney for finances. My situation was quite straightforward so I can’t say how appropriate it would be for complex conditions. I’m very happy with my purchase: for less than $100, I was able to produce documentation that would have cost at least $1000 through an attorney. (Posted on 10/5/2018)

Great software. by Michael O.
I am very pleased with the software. It is user friendly and simple to use. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 10/4/2018)

Worked great! by Michael M.
Forms and information were very comprehensive, easy to use. I definitely would reccommend Willmaker plus. (Posted on 10/4/2018)

Excellent Product by Barbara D.
Thorough. Easy to use. A few quibbles--would like to see the ability to modify certain items, but essentially no problems. Highly recommended. (Posted on 9/26/2018)

Walks you through it and makes it easy by Charlotte
Quicken WillMaker Plus 2019 is better than the previous versions we had but never completed. I am glad they took out one part that I didn't like and inserted more options for contingencies so that if your guardian predeceases you, the will has built-in backups so you don't have to redo your will. I like the explanations of what to do and why to do it that way and I like the Self-Approving part of the will. We had earlier versions of this program, but put it off. I am so glad we finally did it. It was really easy and I like the way the program walks you through it. (Posted on 9/23/2018)

Great estate planner by Crystal J.
This is a great product. Easy to use. Glad I got it. (Posted on 9/23/2018)

Thank you by S & T
We are very impressed and very satisfied with the quality and convenience your product delivers. We now have peace of mind and security. We are grateful that our wishes will be respected and our loved ones will be protected.

Appreciatively,
S & T. (Posted on 9/22/2018)

Willmaker too simple and not flexible by Nolo C.
I had a will but circumstances dictated that I mad a new one. The willmaker is too simple. For example , I needed to mention that a prenupt is in place and that I have other issues. The willmaker does not let you add any important information. So, finally I copied my old will, modified it and had it notarized.
In all , it was a waste of money
(Posted on 9/16/2018)

Impressed by William G.
The software is easy to use but very thorough for estate planning. Well worth the price. (Posted on 9/16/2018)

Great DIY product! by Jay W.
User friendly and well designed. Made the process of preparing our wills very easy! Great DIY product. (Posted on 9/16/2018)

Excellent Product by DL
This product is everything I'd hoped it would be. Everything I need to prepare my Will & Trust is there with easy to follow instructions (with tons of additional help if necessary). Thank you Quicken. (Posted on 9/14/2018)

Review by James H.
Well organized. Easy to navigate. (Posted on 9/14/2018)

Good product and easy to use. by Bob S.
I bought this version of Willmaker for two reasons. One, as an upgrade to my 2013 version, which is a bit out of date. Two, so that I could complete a Living Trust for our house. After looking at various online tools (Legal Zoom, and that type) I felt comfortable with this product. It is familiar, and had all of my personal information that came over from the older version (contacts and so forth). It did what I hoped it would do, and I have updated my will documents (no need to create a new will). I am pleased overall. (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Great product! by Loreb N.
Easy to follow, state specific, good instructions, saves updates automatically. The PLUS contains other useful documents to add to your wills. Autofill feature saves time and typing. (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Review by Bobby F.
I liked the product, worked good and simple for me to use. Only one area that I found that could use improvement. The allocation of fractional shares ne d improvement. Other than that, I think it’s a great product. (Posted on 9/12/2018)

Review by Robert T.
BIG improvement over earlier version
Really like the ease of getting to appropriate section in "E Manual" (Posted on 9/10/2018)

Easy to Use and Thorough -- Passes Local Attorney Test by Anthony N G.
Easy to use. Guides you through the process thoroughly. Forces you to answer question you may not not have considered as being important in a will. Had a lawyer friend of mine check out the finished product. He could find no flaws or omissions. (Posted on 8/9/2018)

Review by Virginia R.
Very easy to use. Exactly wanted it needed (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Still One of the Best Basic Will Tools Available. by Troy S.
This product was purchased to update the estate of my parents who had not updated their will in over 20 years (that too, using WillMaker). WillMaker Plus came with 1 year free access to the Revocable Living Trust software which is what I was primarily interested in. Between WillMaker Plus and the Trust software, my parents now have a organized estate which includes the trust, pour-over wills, healthcare power of attorney, and financial power of attorney documents in a California-legal format. Getting the product on sale in August was a perk as well. The software is simple and straightforward, just as the Nolo software has always been. In some ways it is a bit too simple, since you can't make minor modifications, but these are legal document templates that are meant for low stress. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Review by Sharon L.
thrilled you are making this product for Macs (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Probably excellent by Christophe R. Patraldo
I gave it a five-star review but reserve the right to change my opinion. I only use linux so having no Windows or Mac computer I haven't even downloaded my copy yet. I bought it as a family project and am waiting to return home for a visit where I can use it with someone who has a mac. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Review by Ruben G.
Product is good and fast I personally think in some of the questions the verbiage need to be put in to simpler language. We are not all Lawyers (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Review by JME
Very helpful (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Review by James B.
Willmaker 2018 is a product that everyone should have. Do you realize how many people don't have a will done. This software will get the job done for you. It's easy, fast and simple to use. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Good product by William B.
Nice product. Easy to use. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Complete and easy to use. by LeRoy E.
PRO: Leads the user into completing documents relevant to their situation. Makes the user think and encourages further planning.
CON: If doing a spouse document set, the user ends up with quite a few unnecessarily duplicate pages; instructions and information. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Excellent except for calculations by Terry W.
WillMaker is incredibly easy to use and was just what we needed to update our Wills before leaving the country. My only criticism is that it asks for bequests in fractions which makes it difficult to calculate. Don't know why you can't enter amounts as percent which makes a lot more sense. (Posted on 8/1/2018)

Very good, easy and thorough by Lloyd S.
This is a very thorough program for making wills and many other legal documents. It is very easy to use and does a remarkable job of covering every detail necessary for each document. (Posted on 8/1/2018)
