Why do I need a will?

A will is a legal document which gives you the opportunity to make the decisions and record how your assets are distributed. If you don't have a Will the courts will decide on your behalf. It should be updated as you reach milestones ( e.g. marriage, having children, buying property, joining Kiwisaver, separation/divorce, retirement etc)

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift you can leave to charities or groups you would like to support as a lasting legacy in your Will.
