Protect your inheritance
How will your money and possessions be shared after death?
Making a will can be difficult. There’s a lot to consider and agreeing on what each family member will receive isn’t always easy. Our expert Advisers will walk you through the whole process, support you at every stage and make sure that you’ve got everything covered.
What does a Will state?
- Who will inherit your estate (your money, property and possessions) when you die.
- Your executor/s (the person/s in charge of organising your estate and following your instructions).
- Any other wishes you have such as your funeral, burial or cremation.
Why make a Will?
- YOU get to decide how your estate is shared.
- Protect your money and possessions from leaving your family bloodline.
- Make the process quicker, easier and less stressful for your loved ones.
- Ensure that your partner is provided for.
- Avoid costly care home fees and reduce inheritance tax.
- Define the funeral you want and share any other wishes you have.
What if I don’t make a Will?
- You will die intestate (the state decides who inherits your estate based on the law).
- Sharing your estate could take months (even years), increasing stress and worry for your loved ones.
- If you and your partner are not married or in a civil partnership they will not receive any inheritance.
- Your family may end up with costly care fees or inheritance tax, forcing them to sell the family home.
- Your estate will be under threat from influences outside your family.
- Your family will be left guessing about the funeral you wanted, again increasing upset and stress.
