The 21st of August marks Senior Citizens Day. This day is aimed at raising awareness about supporting the older generation as well as recognising their achievements. Here at the Bespoke Support Network we take extra care in providing support for those that need it.
To many, a will seems like a blasé task. With our lives becoming increasingly busy, this is understandable. Yet, did you know only 30% of the UK population have written a will? This figure is shocking as it is undoubtedly a necessity for securing your families future. Without one, your family can be left in dangerous territory should you pass away unexpectedly. Death is a morbid subject however it needs to be addressed. If you do not have anything in place, the state will dictate what will happen with your estate and belongings; causing a lot of drama amongst families, which can have a detrimental effect.
Having a will clearly identifies who inherits what with minimal fuss, leaving your family to remain together and grieve during this emotional time. Here at Bespoke Support Network, we understand the importance of will and estate planning. We work hard to put you in touch with experts who tailor a plan to suit you, should the unthinkable occur. This way, you can rest assured that your belongings are going to the right home.
When Do I Need to Make a Will?
Creating a will becomes more important after you have children. Setting up a will allows you to decide the final guardian of your children after you pass- this may be a family member or a good friend.
However, everyone who owns a basic level of asset, whether it be a house, or even a car should have a plan in place, otherwise, as aforementioned, it will end up with the state and, in some cases, your children may end up inheriting more than your spouse.
How Do I Put a Plan in Place?
You don’t have to spend hundreds when writing a will, you can write it yourself or confide in a lawyer depending on your circumstances. However, it is recommended that you seek advice before proceeding and make sure when you sign your will, that it is witnessed in order to make it legally valid.
