Estate Planning Resource

Brandeis has partnered with FreeWill, a free online resource that allows users to easily prepare, print and execute a legally valid will. It’s also an easy way to create a legacy with Brandeis without having to pay a cent today. While we generally recommend consulting a professional advisor in connection with the creation or modification of an estate plan, we recognize that that may not always be an available option. Start your will today.
