As you construct your Pennsylvania estate plan, you may wish to consider adding one or more charitable trusts. These are great ways to provide for your favorite church, charity, school, library, animal shelter or any other nonprofit organization while providing for yourself at the same time.
In the age of computers and word processing, most wills appear only as typed and printed documents. Indeed, that is the only type of will that some states will consider valid. However, if you are making out a will in Pennsylvania, you also have the option of writing out your will by hand. The term for this is a holographic will.
Estate planning is not something that most people want to think about since it requires them to consider their deaths. That may be uncomfortable enough, but it also requires contemplation of incapacitation by an illness or injury.
