Place your will where it’s safe from theft, fire, or other damage. A safe-deposit box is one possibility, although it may be difficult for your personal representative to access your safe-deposit box after your death. You also may deposit it with the register in probate for your county.
Be sure your personal representative knows where your will is. Some people also give a copy to their personal representative. You’d want to do this, for instance, if you include funeral preferences in your will. Usually the reading of a will doesn’t happen until after a funeral. So you’d want your personal representative to have a copy on hand, to be able to carry out your funeral wishes.
