Tell Us About How Receiving An Inheritance Changed Your Life

We want to hear your story.

Inheritances are an inherently fascinating and thorny subject, with the potential to change lives, shock loved ones, and cause family drama on a scale never before seen around your dining room table.

So, we'd like to hear from those of you who have received an inheritance: What was the experience like, how did it change your life, and what did you spend it on?

Maybe the arrival of an inheritance meant you were able to pay off your student loans, buy a house, or retire early.

Or, perhaps your inheritance came in the form of family belongings that were sentimentally, rather than monetarily, significant.
