Make Sure Your Will Keeps Pace With Your Life

Your will reflects the time when it was created. Many people have good intentions to update their wills but often fail to do so. You can change your will at a later date by adding a codicil (an amendment) to reflect any life changes.

estate planning wills

Here are some circumstances that make it critical to update your will:
  • You want to name a different personal representative, trustee or guardian.
  • Your estate has increased or decreased significantly.
  • You’ve moved to another state.
  • Your situation or a beneficiary’s situation has changed because of marriage, divorce, birth, adoption or death.
  • Tax laws have changed.
  • You want to include a charitable gift in your will. If you wish to remember Hindu Heritage Endowment, consider leaving us a percentage of your estate so your gift will remain proportional to your estate size, no matter how it fluctuates over the years.

If you have additional questions on updating your will or are considering adding a gift to Hindu Heritage Endowment, please contact us at or 808-822-3012 x 6 for more information.
