November is Will Aid Month

None of us want to think about dying but what will happen to your estate when you die if you don’t have a Will?  And, if you have dependents, you need to think about who will look after them should anything happen to you.  Never has there been a better time to plan for your future than now.  November is Will Aid month.  Make a Will with a local participating solicitor and make a donation to charity instead of paying the solicitor’s fee.  Suggested donation levels range from £40 for a codicil (an amendment to an existing Will), £75 to prepare a Will or £110 to have a pair of mirror Wills prepared, ideal if neither partner has organised their estate.  You don’t have to include a charitable legacy in your Will in order to take part in the initiative – although a solicitor can advise you on how best to do this given your own personal circumstances if you wish to. 

It’s estimated that over 60% of Britons don’t have a Will, so if you’re one of those, it’s worth considering taking part in Will Aid Month this year – I know I will be!
