4 simple 'no-cost-now' ways to give in your will

numbers

GENERAL GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Leaves a gift of a stated sum of money in your will or living trust.  For example, you  might decide to leave each of your grandchildren $10,000.  It's considered to be 'general' because it doesn't specify from where the money comes.

RESIDUAL GIFT IN YOUR WILL

SPECIFIC GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Leaves a specific dollar amount, percentage, fraction, or specific items (collections, art, books, jewelry, and so on).

CONTINGENT GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Leaves a stated amount or share only if a spouse, family member or other heir/beneficiary does not live longer than you.  In other words, your gift is contingent upon whether or not they survive after you.
