Why our pledgers support

Three great reasons to make a Will and keep it up to date


1. Make it easier on friends and family

A Will makes it much easier for your family and friends to take care of your estate and be sure they’re acting on your wishes. Without a Will, the process can be difficult, stressful and time-consuming.

2. Help to minimise inheritance tax

If you’ve got a Will, it can help reduce the amount of inheritance tax that needs to be paid on your estate.

3. Protect the rights of your partner

If you and your partner aren’t married or in a civil partnership, you don’t have the same automatic rights as those who are married. You can make sure your partner’s looked after by naming them in your Will.
