The Young Lawyers Division of the Franklin County Bar Association in collaboration with Bybel Rutledge LLP are proud to bring the Wills for Heroes program to you. Wills for Heroes is a free and easy service that provides Wills, Living Wills, Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney to first responders and military veterans and their spouses/partners. If you die without a Will, Pennsylvania’s intestate laws will determine who will receive your property. Undoubtedly, your loved ones’ grief will be overwhelming; a clear expression of your intent, desires, and wishes may help ease some of this inevitable burden. While nobody likes to think about an untimely death, it is best that you express your wishes through a written document. For your family’s peace of mind, please consider this invaluable opportunity, offered completely free to you and your spouse/partner.
On Friday, November 10, 2023 volunteer lawyers will be conducting a Wills for Heroes Program for all active and retired Pennsylvania First Responders and Military Veterans and their spouses/partners (please note that proof of affiliation or DD214 will be requested at the event). The November 10th event will be held at the Franklin County Bar Association, located at 100 Lincoln Road East, Suite E, Chambersburg, PA beginning at 11:00 a.m. Appointments for each person last approximately 1 hour and at the conclusion of it you will have notarized legal documents – a Will, Living Will, and Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney (or any combination thereof). If you select that you are coming with a spouse/partner you will have back to back appointments, and the computer will automatically schedule a second appointment (you do not need to schedule a separate appointment for each of you). Please schedule your appointment early as this event is sure to fill up fast.
Appointments must be scheduled online at: www.pabar.org/wfh

** If your estate exceeds approximately $750,000, this service is unavailable to you due to the complexity of your estate and the limited time to complete the legal documents. For determining if your estate is over $750,000, include your cash, personal property, stock and bonds, real estate equity, savings, cash value of a whole/universal life insurance policy only (not the amount of the insurance policy).
