How to write a will

Writing a will is an important financial task, as it sets out what happens to your money and other assets when you die. In our article, we discuss the three main ways you can write a will, and the pros and cons with each different method. 

Whichever route you choose to create or update your will, the most important thing is that you get it done. Most of us can look forward to decades of active years ahead, but the effort of getting your will sorted now is such a small price to pay for lasting peace of mind.

Head over to our community forum and ask it there. You could get an answer from someone who’s been in the same position as you. If we think it could benefit a lot of people, we’ll create a guide and add it here.
