Probably the most well-known estate-planning tool is the last will and testament. Whether standing alone or as part of a multifaceted estate plan, a will is a convenient and often simple and straightforward way to distribute assets to those you love. It is also a powerful way to help veterans.
You can structure your will to make HHV the beneficiary of a specific dollar amount or property, of a percentage of your estate, or of your residuary estate, which is what remains after all specific bequests and expenses have been accounted for.
To name HHV in your will, all you generally need is the following information:
- HHV’s full legal name: Help Hospitalized Veterans, Inc.
- HHV’s physical mailing address: 36585 Penfield Lane, Winchester CA 92596
- HHV’s federal tax identification number: 95-2706737
In addition, the following language can generally be used to make a bequest to HHV:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Help Hospitalized Veterans, Inc., federal tax identification number 95-2706737, residing at 36585 Penfield Lane, Winchester CA 92596, the sum of $ [amount] (or describe the real or personal property or percentage of your estate to be used for its general purposes).
Rest assured, you can change your will at any time, at your discretion.
There’s no time like the present to plan for the future. Remember, in this case, it’s not the thought that counts, it’s the Will.
HHV strongly encourages the consultation with a professional legal advisor. The preceding should not be used as legal advice.
