The Importance of Will Planning with Nationwide

This post is sponsored by Brittney Fusilier on behalf of Nationwide, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As many of you know, my family is everything to me. Building our family’s legacy has always been super important for my husband and I, and as our family continues to expand, the level of importance continues to rise. We know the adult thing to do is to properly plan for our future, and so, with the help of Nationwide, we’ve done just that. My husband and I have taken advantage of the “Free Will” Tool that Nationwide has provided access to, as well as acquired term life insurance. The Nationwide team was so helpful in explaining each product and we are so excited to have taken the step!

While “term” life insurance is an easier concept to grasp, it took a little longer for me to see the value in having a “free will” at this point in our lives. I thought we were too young to have to worry about it, but truth is, you can never be too young to start preparing for your family’s future.

When you think about a “will,” what comes to mind? By definition, a will is simply a legal document that makes sure your wishes are carried out after you’re gone. It will let you decide who receives your money and assets, but more importantly, it also lets you decide who will care for your kids (and even your pets, too!). I literally thought having a will meant it had to be a read in a dramatic fashion with lots of people watching, sort of like you see in movies. Truth is though, there is no requirement to publicly read a will!

A will also doesn’t have to be an extensive and expensive process. Many, like myself, think that a will requires having a lawyer, when in fact, Nationwide offers a free online will planning tool that is just as valid as using a lawyer. It only takes about 20 minutes, you just fill out the information, print your documents and sign them in front of a witness. THAT’S IT! If you’re considering when you should take the necessary steps to begin protecting your family’s future, the time is now! If you think you will need a will or just want more information, Nationwide is partnering with a company called FreeWill to offer free online will planning. Visit to get started.

I hope you’ve found this helpful. I know will planning and term life insurance can both be uncomfortable topics to think about, but they are both extremely necessary. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me or DM me. Thanks so much for reading!
