Categories: Wills

Let's face it, estate planning isn't exactly poolside with margaritas. But just like flossing (adults, you know what I mean), it's an essential chore that brings significant benefits. Here at  Willskeeper, we're all about empowering Canadians to take control of their future, and creating a Will is a powerful first step.

Why You Should Make Your Will Today (It's Easier Than You Think!)

We get it. Traditional lawyers can be intimidating and expensive. That's why Willskeeper offers a modern alternative: a lawyer-drafted Will you can create entirely online, without the hefty price tag. But the benefits of having a Will go far beyond saving money. Keep reading to discover five compelling reasons to secure your legacy, and get started on your Will today!

1. Make Your Wishes Known

Imagine this: you pass away, and your loved ones are left scrambling to figure out what you wanted done with your belongings. Not exactly the send-off you envisioned, right? A Will lets you clearly outline your wishes for your assets, ensuring they go to the people (or pets!) you choose.

2. Protect Your Loved Ones

Life can be unpredictable. If you have minor children, a Will allows you to appoint a guardian who will care for them in your absence. This can provide immense peace of mind and avoid unnecessary stress for your family during a difficult time.

3. Avoid Intestacy (It's a Legal Headache You Don't Want)

Intestacy is a fancy legal term that simply means "dying without a Will." If you fall into this category, the courts decide how your assets are distributed. This may not align with your wishes, and can lead to family conflict and delays. Why leave things to chance?

4. Minimize Taxes (Because Who Wants To Pay More Than Necessary?)

Strategic Will planning can help reduce the amount of inheritance tax your beneficiaries face.  While the specifics depend on your situation, a Will crafted by knowledgeable legal professionals can make a significant difference.

5. Peace Of Mind (Priceless!)

There's a certain comfort that comes with knowing your affairs are in order. Creating a Will allows you to face the future with confidence, secure in the knowledge that your loved ones will be taken care of according to your wishes.

Ready to take control of your future and protect your loved ones? Willskeeper makes creating a Will simple, affordable, and completely online. Get started today and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a Will.
