Do I need to register my will?

No state requires that you register your will; however, it is important that your executor and beneficiaries at least know the location of your will or are given copies. If you do decide to register your will, you should contact your local probate court or Secretary of State’s Office to see if your state offers this service. Alternatively, there are private companies that will register and hold a copy of your will. Both state and private companies normally charge a fee for this service.
