In a year that has certainly got us thinking about the future, we turn our attention to our loved ones, and how we can cement plans in place for them.

New research from Macmillan Cancer Support has revealed that nearly 2 in 3 UK residents have yet to write a will and make their final wishes known.*

Did you know that without an up-to-date will, the law can overrule a person’s final wishes and as a result leave possessions, money, property and even dependent children, with someone who they may not have selected?

This is why it’s so important to not only create a will including your final wishes, but to also update your will at least every five years to ensure what is written is still relevant.

Knowing you have this sorted, and with someone who can remind you to update your will, may give you peace of mind, especially as we come into a new year.

Wills are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
