3 reasons every parent needs a Will
If you have children, having a Will helps to secure their future. Here are three ways writing your Will with Cancer Research UK will protect your family’s future and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.
1. Provide peace of mind for your children
Dealing with someone’s estate after they died without a Will can be stressful. What would they have wanted? That’s the question most people are left asking themselves. A Will supports your child through this process.
Writing a Will with the Free Will Service can give your loved ones peace of mind knowing they are carrying out your exact wishes.
2. Appoint legal guardians
3. Secure their financial future and leave a lasting legacy
Whether your children are toddlers, teenagers or fully-grown adults, you need a Will to set out exactly how much you want them to inherit.
After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you may wish to leave a share of your estate, also known as a residuary gift, or a sum of money to Cancer Research UK. Gifts in Wills are vital to Cancer Research UK, funding one third of our life-saving work and they are critical to creating a future where everyone survives cancer.
If you don’t have a Will, your estate would be divided up following something called the laws of intestacy, read more about this law. This is similar to a flowchart that defines where your money goes. Writing a Will ensures your assets will go directly to the people and the causes that mean the most to you.
