LegacyWise pricing is based on a sliding scale based upon income. The average plan ranges from $300 to $700. Payment plans and grants for those in need are available. Those unable to pay can reduce LegacyWise fees down to $1 per document and, in some cases, support from others is available to pay that $1.
LegacyWise has been designed to get you Done in a Day! After your registration is complete, you will choose a Seminar near you. On your Seminar day, you will learn all about estate planning, make your own customized plan, and make an appointment to sign your documents – all within a few hours! A limited number of signing appointments are available right after the seminar for those who need to sign that day.
Many online systems offer fill-in-the-blank forms without much flexibility or customization. The LegacyWise system offers customizable documents that address unique family structures and life circumstances. LegacyWise also offers live seminars to help you truly understand your estate plan and end of life options. Through the LegacyWise system you will build your own documents. The documents are purposely designed to be easily understood. LegacyWise staff can answer questions as you build your own documents.
It depends. A Will is a public document that describes how you want your estate handled after death. It must go through a court process called “probate” after your death.

How can LegacyWise help my organization? Why should I offer a LegacyWise seminar to my members/employees?
Offering a LegacyWise seminar provides your members with a sense of value and belonging. In addition, because LegacyWise provides information on charitable giving, organizations may benefit by being listed in its members estate plans.
Charitable Giving is the practice of donating a portion of your estate to a non-profit organization or charity of your choosing. This may be your house of worship, school, or favorite charity.
Donating a portion of your estate to a religious, charitable, or non-profit cause helps the organization grow and thrive. Including a meaningful cause in your estate plan can also enhance your sense of legacy. Giving is also an important part of Biblical stewardship for those who follow the Holy Scriptures. Finally, some estates may benefit from tax breaks for charitable giving. Check with your attorney or financial planner to see if this may benefit your estate.
