Revising your will after the death of a loved one
By Martin Brieger, Site Editor.
If someone close to you passes on, it may change your own plans for the future. It might affect what you include in your will so it’s crucial to take some time to think about this.
Changing your will
You may want to consider changing up your will document if:
You have recently inherited something and want to specify who it should be passed down to in the event of your passing.
You are thinking about your own funeral – suggesting how you want it to be arranged or ensuring there is easy access to money for the proceedings.
Someone who has recently passed on was named as an executor, beneficiary or guardian. You may want to change who will now receive that share of your estate, or you might need to appoint a different executor or guardian if you have not already selected substitutes.
