Online Wills & The Uniform Electronic Wills Act

Donors have become increasingly comfortable using technology solutions to meet their estate planning needs. In this session, we will look at the rise of online will-writing technology and how planned giving professionals can utilize these tools to increase accessibility to estate planning and planned giving among their donors. We will also take a look at the difference between "online" wills and "electronic" wills, and discuss what the future of will-writing technology might look like. Some of the questions we will answer include:

  • Are online will valid? Are they safe?
  • Who should use online will-writing tools (and who shouldn't)?
  • Are online wills only useful for younger donors?
  • What's the difference between an "online" will and an "electronic" will, and what does the Uniform Electronic Wills Act mean for the world of planned giving?
