Should I store my will in a safe deposit box?

Probably not. Unless you are certain to have someone else authorized to access your box (and, ideally, a back-up to that person), McCreary Law Office does not recommend storing your will in a safe deposit box. A safe deposit box cannot be opened by someone else until your death. And a court order might be needed. McCreary Law Office instead recommends a fire-proof bag or safe in your home.
