Using your EAP to setup your Will for FREE

According to an article I found online, close to 80% of employers offer an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Often this includes free or discount counseling and legal work. Less than 10% of employees use this benefit. This sounds pretty accurate from my work with United Methodist pastors. The sad thing is that these EAP benefits could really help you take care of some important things…like setting up a will.

In the video, I walk you through how to actually navigate the United Methodist EAP to get to setting up a will. Part of the reason these benefits aren’t used much might be that they are hard to get access to. If you are on the fence on whether or not this is important to you and your church, here’s my reasons I think it is important:

  1. Love of Family: As Dave Ramsey says, the only reason not to have a will is if you hate your family. A will helps your family grieve and not have to guess what your final wishes were.
  2. Control: You decide what happens to your money and stuff…not the State.
  3. Generous Giving: You can leave good gifts to your family and the charities you love the most.
  4. Preparing to Teach: By going through this process, you will better be able to help others who need to setup their own will.
