Suze Orman's Organize and Protect Financial System
Suze Orman kept saying that we would have access to someone in her organization if we needed help; well I have tried several times to reach someone (following the confusing instructions to request help) and it has been 1 week with no reply. I can't log-in to my account, so I had to start from the beginning with a new account. Also, trying to find an attorney willing to review the documents at a reduced rate is almost impossible. They all want to make up their own!!
I have been watching Suze from the time she first started and always believed in what she said; now I am not so sure.
I am returning it because the container is not for safety. There's no lock. When I closed it there's a gap on both side. The silicon around the edge is too thin and when it ripped that's it. What about if there's a flood? I did not bother to open the cd/dvd I rely on the previous reviewers.
my husband and I sat down and did this together we even printed the will and trust but we kept putting off getting it notarized I even worked at a bank. Well my husband passed away before we ever completed this. I did have some problems that I would not of had had we gotten this notarized. Since my husbands passing I have completed everything and have had it all notarized. I do NOT want my sons to have any problems after my passing. We all owe it to our families to be as organized as possible to help them through a very very rough time. This kit was very easy and very well done. Couldn't of asked for anything easier. Lawyers can be so confussing and this wasn't.
Can not get anyone to notarized will and trust
I like the kit, my issue was getting anyone to notarize the will and the trust, went to both my bank and my town hall and they would not do it. So I have not completed either will and trust yet because the next step was to have them notarized.
This is SO Worth the Money!
I cannot believe anyone would give this less than 5 stars; it really is worth much more than that! My husband died unexpectedly a couple of years ago. He was in the hospital many months and at one point almost died from a very bad infection. The nurse pulled me aside and said that he might not make it and I should be prepared. Well, the one thing he did not have was a Will!. I did not even bother contacting a lawyer because I remembered I had Suze's Financial System and that evening, I got it out and created his Will. Luckily he was able to sign it and I had a Notary at the hospital notarize it. Thankfully he made it though this and I was able to put him in a nice rehab place to try and get him well. Unfortunately, he died there and I was totally numb, but thank goodness for Suze! I took his Will to my lawyer and she was not too happy that I took things into my own hands and said I should have let her do it, but believe it or not, the Will handled everything needed and she did not say another word. :-) This Financial System was a blessing for me and so worth the money.
Anyone who has negative comments to say or if something is broke or a disk not included, all you have to do is call QVC or the 800 number for Suze, let them know this. I'm sure, given circumstances of a sickness or whatever, they will see that you get a replacement. This product is just so valuable and I hope everyone will take advantage of buying it today; NOT tomorrow.
Sorry Suze, not a good buy for me
After I bought it, I became ill, in and out of hospitals. So it was not used for a while. When I did try to use it, I found one of the cd's had just broken off , and one of the books was missing. I was not functioning too well, it was past 30 days to return it, so I set it aside. It was a while before I got back to it and found it was not what I was looking for. So between illness, missing books, and broken cd's, it was a mess and so was I. I don't think it was a good buy for me
This is a terrific product
I've used this product to create a trust and will. In addition, I've made far more well informed financial decisions on all types of things including insurance. This product is well worth the money. I see that some people are concerned about the idea of having an attorney review their documents. My understanding is that statement is a disclaimer much like the disclaimer "ask your doctor before you start a weight lose program." There is always a possibility that one could benefit from an attorney's expertise, however,for most working class people this product is fine and far better than what most people currently have. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO TRY IT and decide for yourself. Remember this is QVC, if you really don't like it you can return it. I'm purchasing my fourth one because I keep giving them to my friends.
My login worked for the first CD, then would not work when I got to the next CD. Now, I cannot even get an email response to changing my password. I also went to the Suze Orman website and followed the instructions for help as was outlined in the portfolio, and the password given did not work. It did help me to organize the documents in one place, but creating a "Love Drawer" for the documents as Dave Ramsey suggests or an accordian folder would be just as effective. I could not find any recommendations for doing a do it yourself will and trust kit over seeing a lawyer for estate planning.
Suse Orman cd's
I also am not able to open all the c.d's...alot of money for this package and not able to use all that was provided...did not use right away because husband just had two surgerys so my 30 days were up when I got to open ...nor was the first disk as "user friendly" as susggested. Quality control where are you???
Necessary for Single Parents
I purchased this organizer several years ago and I have recently divorced and also became disabled since that time. This is a necessary kit for single parents. Just saving you the hassle of going through probate is well worth it. I'm a nurse and I know having your medical wishes known BEFORE you can't make decisions, saves a lot of family struggles and added grief when a family member is ill. I will admit, it has taken me ever since I received the kit to organize my paperwork and decide what to put in the box and get it organized!! But that is my fault. Suze can only do SO much, short of coming to your home and doing it for you!! You have to be motivated to get the results!!
I created a Will, Health Care Proxy, and Power of Attorney. I brought them to two Attorneys for review and to be notorized, Both attorneys advised me the documents were useless. You can have the documents notorized but that does not mean they will protect you.
I, too, was kind of mislead with the presentation. She kept stating you would need Internet access so that should have clued me, it didn't. I entered the information stated on the will, etc. CD and then realized all this info was now available on the net, ugh! Also problems with the other 3 CD's. For some reason I was not able to log on to them. Won't send back but wish I would've read reviews prior to ordering.
