What is a Wisdom Will?
A Wisdom Will ensures that your children will know the secrets to a happy and successful life. Your Wisdom Will organizes your values, life experiences and wisdom in a unique and meaningful way for your child or other special young person.
How does it work?
We’ve created an easy to use online platform full of topics, ideas and suggestions to help you from start to finish. You can use as much or as little of our content as you’d like. We’ve also provided many sample pages to help inspire you. Once your Wisdom Will is complete our software will convert it into an official Wisdom Will document for you to present to your child at a time of your choosing.
How long does it take?
A Wisdom Will could be created in one sitting but it’s designed for you to work on over time. After all, the wisdom and experiences you’re going to share were accumulated over time. Your Wisdom Will should take some time as well. Any time you feel inspired or something important happens in your life that you want your children to know about simply log in and add it. You can be in and out in under 5 minutes if you want to be. Chipping away at it over time is usually the way to go. But if you’re the parent of a child nearing graduation or a grandparent who’s seen it all, your Wisdom Will could be done quickly.
Where is my Wisdom Will kept?
As long as you have an active account your Wisdom Will will be kept on our secure servers. Once you’ve completed your Wisdom Will and are ready to give it to the recipient, you will simply save and download. For what the final product looks like, take a look at some samples.
Can anyone else besides me see my Wisdom Will?
No. When you open an account to start your Wisdom Will, you are the only one that has access to your account and the Wisdom Will you are working on. We use a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. You will notice that our website has an https vs a http at the beginning of the URL in the title/location bar. It also displays as “secure” with a padlock (or similar) in the location/title bar demonstrating that our site is indeed secure.
If something happens to me, how do my loved ones receive my Wisdom Will?
You can designate up to 2 people to be your “registered agents”. These are people close to you that you’ll let know you’ve created a Wisdom Will. We’ll provide you with instructions via email that you can forward to your registered agent(s). In the unlikely event something happens to you your registered agent(s) will simply contact us, we’ll verify their information and then release your Wisdom Will to them according to your instructions. If you decide not to renew your membership when the term expires you’ll need to download it and store it in a safe place, since it will no longer be active and stored on our servers. And you’ll need to let your registered agent(s) know how to access it if needed.
Can I create a Wisdom Will for a group of people?
Yes. You can designate a single Wisdom Will for more than one person (i.e. you have 3 daughters). But if you want to personalize a WW for each daughter you will need to create 3 separate Wisdom Will’s (although you can use as much of the same info for each as you would like).
How long do I have to complete my Wisdom Will?
Once you’ve created your account you can make unlimited updates to your Wisdom Will for a full year (or more if you choose a multi-year option). At the end of your option term, your membership will automatically renew for another year unless you close your account. If you elect to close please be sure to safely store your Wisdom Will first and let your registered agent(s) know.
Is my Wisdom Will a legal document?
No. A Wisdom Will is not a replacement for a living will or last will and testament. But in our opinion having a Wisdom Will is every bit as important!
