Sixty-one per cent of adults in the UK do not have a current will.
And the main reason why? Those people ‘have just not got round to it’.
That’s according to research carried out on behalf of Standard Life.
And one of the most worrying aspects of the survey is that the ‘just not got round to it’ statement was given by over half of those aged between 55 and 64.
Now having a will is important for everyone, whatever their status, but in particular it should be classed as a priority for the group of people nearing, or already in, retirement, who may have accumulated substantial assets and pensions, and have children and grandchildren they may want to look out for.
If you need help making a will then perhaps here at Lifetime we can be of assistance.
The legal side is part of our business that has gone from strength to strength since it was first launched nearly three years ago.
Then the primary focus was to provide wills, however it quickly became apparent that our clients wanted far more when it came to protecting their estate.
The range of services offered soon grew to include Lasting Powers of Attorney, Storage and Probate services.
Knowing that your spouse/partner and family are provided for is all part of the excellent financial planning picture Lifetime helps you to create.
The idea that you can also plan for what happens after you die or if you become mentally incapacitated offers the ultimate peace of mind.
We believe that Lifetime Legal Solutions is the icing on the cake of what Lifetime has to offer.
