Senior Wills Program

Established to assist low-income senior citizens with low-cost simple wills, eligible candidates must be 60 years or older with limited assets and annual earnings not exceeding $15,000 for singles and $20,000 for couples. In addition to low-cost wills, seniors can obtain forms and information regarding Durable Powers of Attorney and Living Wills. Depending on the legal service provided, costs range from $50 to $125. The Program is offered at suburban area senior citizens centers. The Chicago Bar Association screens and furnishes participating attorneys. Please note that all scheduled dates are tentative. Call the center nearest you to confirm a date and make an appointment.
