Check Out This Potential Scenario
When Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved Whitworth and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to us in their will.
As Tom and Martha's family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the bequest language so that their gift to Whitworth was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
