By taking a few minutes to think about what you'd like to happen to your estate when you pass away, you can ensure your loved ones are provided for.


Will writing

A Will is about more than just money:
  • You can name a trusted person to deal with your estate after you pass away (known as an 'executor'). This person will have the authority to manage your assets, pay your outstanding debts and distribute your estate according to your wishes.
  • A Will protects your interests, it helps your loved ones and it ensures everything is done as you’d wish.
  • You can identify special possessions or family heirlooms that you would like to go to a specific person.
  • You can express wishes for your funeral.
  • If you have children under 18, you can nominate a legal guardian to care for them.
  • Wills can also be used for tax planning, to protect your assets for future generations and maximise what is passed on to your loved ones.  

Some common reasons why people think that they don't need a Will
