Wills for Heroes program hits milestone

On June 27, the MSBA’s Wills for Heroes program served its 10,000th client. Wills for Heroes, which began in Columbia, South Carolina shortly after 9/11, is designed to assist emergency personnel in preparing wills at no cost. Launched in Minnesota in 2007 by the MSBA Probate and Trust Law Section, the Minnesota program is one of 27 such efforts nationwide.

Those eligible for WFH services include:

  • Police officers
  • Firefighters
  • EMTs and paramedics
  • Corrections officers
  • Spouses or widows/widowers of such personnel
