Welcome to the Family Inheritance Project

Family looking at digital pictures.

Examining the meaning and experience of inheritance decisions from the perspective of older parents, adult children, and siblings.

"Older parents and adult children are needed to help fill the gap in what's known about the meaning and experience of "fairness" when passing on possessions and financial resources. There are so many unanswered questions and family members are hungry for quality research-based educational tools to make informed decisions."
