Write a Will Week

Monday 26 September to Sunday 2 October is Write a Will Week! For the eighth year running, we're raising awareness of the most important duty that too many people seem to put off until tomorrow.

This year's research has revealed that well over half of the UK’s adult population - 59 per cent - have not yet written a will. By not doing so, these people are potentially storing up big problems and stresses for their families, who could end up losing a lot of money as a result. So what are you doing about it? 

Join us for Write a Will Week

Remember, it won't be you who faces the consequences of dying without a will - it will be your family and other potential beneficiaries. We all have a responsibility to make sure our affairs are neatly tied up in advance - after all, why make a difficult time even more difficult?

Where are the wills?

Who is thinking ahead and who is hoping for the best? It depends where in the UK you look. This year we find the Midlands, Northern Ireland and Wales the least well prepared when it comes to considering their beneficiaries, while people in Scotland and the North West come top.
