Your original Last Will and Testament, signed by you and multiple witnesses, is an important legal document that will ensure your wishes are carried out.
You should keep your will in a safe place that is also accessible to the people who will need to access it after you die.
It is not generally a good idea to keep your will in a bank safety deposit box because it may not be readily accessible.
Instead, you may wish to keep it secure in a home safe or a safe located at your attorney’s office.
The person you appoint as your executor, who is charged with carrying out your wishes, should have a copy of your will with directions on where and how to access the original.
