Writing a Will is an uncomfortable thought, as it reminds us of our own mortality. It is also often considered by some to be a job for the retired which is why millions of people still haven’t made one! Insurer Aviva’s Real Retirement Report discovered that more than two-fifths of those over 55 had not written a Will.
The simple fact is that no-one knows what is around the corner whether you are 20, 30, 40 or older and we now live in a society that demands choice so why do we choose to ignore such an important contract which legally declares your choice with what happens to your assets, no matter how small.
As soon as you start earning a salary, buying cars and property, having children or building relationships with others who have family, saving for pensions or ISA’s, starting businesses etc., you should think about what happens to your assets or your children if you were suddenly not here.
If you feel uncomfortable reading these questions then you need to make a Will. We don’t seem to have any trouble arranging Life insurance so why is writing a Will any different? You are simply preparing for any unfortunate events which will affect your loved ones. You can have your Last Will and Testament put in writing so there is never any doubt what your wishes are for your family and friends. When the Will is done, you are unlikely to have to think about it again unless your circumstances change.
5 Reasons to get a Will:
NOTE: Beware of cheap non-qualified solicitors and online Will services as a Will can be declared invalid if there are mistakes.
