[ARCHIVED] FREE Wills available for eligible Gloucester County residents


Gloucester County’s free wills program is offered to our veteran and senior population at no charge. This program provides drafting and signing services to any veterans or seniors in the local area.

“Creating a will is likely not anyone’s idea of a good time. The excuses are many: ‘It takes too long,’ or ‘It’s too expensive or complicated,’” said Director Frank J. DiMarco. “Gloucester County wants to dispel those notions and provide a practical solution for everyone– especially our Veterans and Seniors.” 

The Gloucester County Office of Veterans Affairs can provide a free simple will to individuals 59 years of age and younger. The Division of Senior Services will provide a free simple will to veterans and residents 60 years of age and older. 

A Simple Free Will is an uncomplicated will that does not involve trusts or other complex estate plans.

“Unless you go to an attorney and hire them, they’re usually thousands of dollars to get these documents drawn up,” said Commissioner Denice DiCarlo. “This program gets rid of the added stress of payment and provides an easy want to get your affairs in order.”

If you are a veteran that is 59 years of age and younger, please contact our Veteran’s Affairs Office at (856) 401-7660.

If you are a veteran or senior 60 years of age and older, please contact our Division of Senior Services at (856) 384-6900.
