  • Wills (last will and testament)-these enable you to identify who you want to receive your property and finances after your death.
  • Living wills-these provide instructions for your doctor stating your wishes for end-of-life medical care.
  • Trusts-a written set of rules to determine when your finances, or another substantial gift, should be distributed to your beneficiaries.
