Age UK Todmorden are holding a Will Making Month in April 2016 with the help of local solicitors to encourage more people to make their will.
Having a Will is the best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death.
Research shows that around two-thirds of people haven’t got round to writing a will yet.
By writing a will you can ensure there is adequate financial provision for your family and your estate will be divided as you want.
If you die without a Will (called ‘intestate’), there are strict guidelines that must be followed. Don’t assume a spouse automatically will collect everything: partners may get nothing, and even a spouse may not get a significant slice of the estate.
For your own peace of mind and to avoid undue stress for your loved ones, making a will is an important step. It is also important to have a properly qualified professional to write your Will – the internet is full of information that can be downloaded for next to nothing – but equally full of horror stories where wills have not been made correctly.
Make your will this April and help Age UK Todmorden provide services and support for all our older people.
