What makes 1Life Wills and Estate Plan so smart?

The events of the last few years have painfully underscored the importance of having a properly drafted Will in place. A lot of people avoid doing their Will because they believe the process is complex and expensive.

The good news is technology has changed all of that.

Online solutions like 1Life Wills and Estate Plan allow you to create your Will from the comfort of your own home and with the help of your financial adviser. You don’t need to take time off for appointments to have the Will drawn up, and it is both quick and affordable. Because it is online, you can access and update your information whenever you want to.

Can technology manage the complexity where a Will needs to be customised?

Most Wills have some complexity - and so the question is: Can online solutions cater for the additional clauses that reflect your personal circumstances?

For example:

  • How do you make allowances for special bequests or instructions for items of value?
  • What happens in the case of simultaneous death and the provision of a testamentary trust to protect vulnerable children?

The most important consideration is to make sure your Will is enforceable. There are very specific legal requirements when writing and signing a Will.

1Life offers you a cutting-edge fiduciary online solution and the ability to customise your Will to your specific circumstances.
