Making a will is the only way for you to ensure your assets are dealt with in the way you want them to be after your death. If you die without making a will your property and assets may not pass to the people you would like them to. By making a will you can specify which of your possessions you wish to give to individuals and you may distribute legacies of money to family, friends or charity.

If you answer YES to any question below – you ought to consider making a will:
• Do you have a partner?
• Have you any children under 18?
• Have you any older children or other adult dependants?
• Have you any children from a previous relationship?
• Have you any property, savings or policies not in joint names?

• Safeguard your family’s or partner’s future?
