How you go about making your Will and what you include is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The good news is that making or updating your Will can be simple.
Your Will is the only way for you to control how your money, possessions and assets should be distributed after you are gone. A Will also means less confusion and heartache for your loved ones in their time of grief. If you don’t make a Will, part or all of your estate may end up going to people you never intended to benefit.
Keeping your Will in Check
Consider the following questions before reviewing your Will:
- Are there any additions or changes to your family?
- Has your marital status changed?
- Have you had any change in your assets?
- Do you have any health conditions?
- Have you moved to another province or country?
- Have your Executors or Trustees changed?
- What are your charitable interests?
