At Super-Advice we are about all things financial, but more importantly, helping people understand so they can get ahead financially.
In today’s blog post we are going to go share with you everything we know about Wills, so you can make an informed decision about choosing to have one or not.
Do I need a Will?
Do you need a Will, well you don’t HAVE to have a Will, but it is a GOOD idea to have one. It makes things easier for those you leave behind.
What does a Will do?
A Will is a set of instructions for someone to follow when you are no longer here.
If you don’t put those instructions in place, someone else will simply make those decisions for you.
And it’s more than just about the money and assets you leave behind.
- It’s things like who would you like to raise your children?
- Who would you like to look after your pets?
- Where would you like to be laid to Rest?
- Would you like to be cremated or would you like to be buried?
What happens if I don’t have a Will?
So having a Will is really about being organsed and making sure that you control what happens after you leave our beloved earth rather than someone else.
Not having a Will can cause trouble with those family members left behind if there are no instructions because everyone will have a different opinion of what should be happening with your assets and your wishes.
How can I get a Will?
Creating and maintaining a Will has never been easier in this day and age, you can jump online and do a Will pretty quickly. It takes about 10 minutes to do a Will and you can do it all online from the comfort of your own home. Once it’s done, you can update it whenever you want or need to.
That’s a wrap
Did you know that only 49% of New Zealanders have a Will across the board?
This means lots of arguments and potential family feuds at the other end of life.
So do you HAVE to have a Will? no, you don’t have to have a Will, but it is a very GOOD idea to have one to make things easier for your family and to make sure your assets are put in the right hands.
