Where should I keep my will?

The Will should be kept in a safety deposit box in a bank. To obtain the Will, it is necessary to obtain the key and be authorized to enter the box. If no person other than the Decedent may access the box, then with or without a court order, the bank may allow the designated Executor (who has a copy of the Will) to enter the box to obtain the Will and insurance policies. If not, the Court has the forms available for a Court order. The Executor or beneficiaries should be able to locate the safety deposit box. The location of the Will and digital assets (such as passwords and usernames, security codes) should be provided. The name of the lawyer who prepared the Will is also helpful.
