Why is a Will important

Having a Will is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family. It reflects who and what is important to you – your loved ones, family and friends, as well as the causes and charities you support.


A Will is a legal document that will protect the people who are important to you, as well as your assets. It spells out exactly how you would like things handled after you have passed away.

Important decisions, like who will look after your minor children or dependents, should be included in your Will. It will also allow for the distribution of your assets in the way that you intent.

Without a Will, the legal process used to distribute your assets can be lengthy and expensive. A Will removes this extra stress from your loved ones during that difficult time.

You may wish to leave a gift in your Will to your favourite charities. By remembering your favourite charities in this way, you are ensuring your legacy will make a positive impact well into the future.

Most charities wouldn’t be able to do the wonderful work they do without gifts in Wills.
