Planning for your future with RCNLaw

Making time to write a will

We spend our lives working to support ourselves and our loved ones, yet 57% of us do not have a will.
Many people are also unaware of the problems of dying without a will (intestate).

A will ensures that your wishes are clearly set out and eliminates any unnecessary distress for your loved ones. 

Writing a will is easier than you may think, and as an RCN member you have direct access to RCNLaw: an expert team of legal professionals here to guide you through the process, providing you with the peace of mind that your wishes are set out for the future.

A will is for everyone

You do not need to own a property or have significant wealth to protect the financial security of your loved ones.

In fact, probate is required when a persons assets are worth more than £5,000; this can include insurance policies and belongings. And, if you have young children, you choose who you wish to appoint as their responsible guardians.

A will gives you the control to select the people who will manage your affairs after your death, and you can set out your wishes for specific items or charity donations.

Wills are living documents

If you have already made your will, it is important to keep it up to date so it is still relevant and valid.

Have you recently been through a significant life event? For example, moving house, getting married, having children, or adopting? You may have become divorced, widowed or invested in a second home. You could have received a large bonus or a even experienced a downturn in your finances.

All of these situations would result in a change to your chosen beneficiaries.
