Sample Amendment for Your Will


When it’s time to update your will, you don’t have to start from scratch. You can use a codicil, an addition or supplement that explains or modifies your existing will.

I give, devise, and bequeath $ ___________ to the American Lung Association, 55 W. Wacker Drive, Suite 1150, Chicago, IL 60601, for its charitable uses and purposes.

In all other respects I ratify and confirm all of the provision of my said last Will and Testament dated on the _________ day of ______________, 20__

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I sign, publish and declare this instrument to be a Codicil to my last Will and Testament in the presence of the persons witnessing said Codicil at my request this _____ day of ___________, 20___.

_________________________ residing at __________________________
(name)

Witnesses

_________________________ residing at ___________________________

The codicil, to be valid, must be signed in the presence of witnesses, and the original placed with your other valuable papers. A copy can go to your lawyer and a copy to the American Lung Association.
