November was National Will Writing Month!!

20161122 irwin mitchell family willsWriting a will can seem like a morbid and upsetting thing to do, however, this month we will focus on how important it is to get this task done.  

It’s a surprising fact that more than two thirds of people in the UK do not have a will. Until last year I was one of them, I had two children already and a house so why hadn’t I thought about what would happen to them if I died? The honest truth is I thought I would somehow jinx myself and as a healthy, youngish! person I thought I had all the time in the world, as a non superstitious and organised person that was ridiculous.

During my research into wills I discovered that statistically will writers live 8 years longer than non will writers, so that was all the push I needed to get started!

It’s important to know that if we die without a will we can cause unnecessary stress to our loved ones left to deal with our affairs and the state will decide what happens. Writing a will is the only way to ensure our wishes are carried out.

So don’t put it off, get those affairs in order and then enjoy life.  - Remember a will is life driven and only death activated.
