Lockdown – use the time to get your affairs sorted!
Let’s all make use of this time that we have been given and get our affairs in order. Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney are not just for the older generation. Everyone needs to plan for the future and if these unprecedented times have taught us anything it is to be prepared.
Despite us all needing a Will barely 40% of us have one.
Less than half of Britons have written a will
Despite Legal firms having reported a surge in enquiries since the COVID-19 outbreak, Royal London warns that barely 40% of UK adults have a will in place. The insurance firm said that, even among retirement-age adults, a third haven’t formally set out their legacies.
In our usual hectic worlds, planning for a Will often becomes a job for the future! I will do that next week… I will set up an appointment and get it sorted…… then life just gets in the way and before you know it, it’s a brand-new year and you still haven’t done it!
Let’s all take the time now, when we are at home and going nowhere to plan, protect our families and loved ones and prepare our Wills.
Ridley & Hall home workers can take instructions via video calls, prepare the drafts and email across to you, get everything approved and organise witnessing in line with the social distancing restrictions. Use your time wisely and take this opportunity to get your affairs in order.
