Planning for the inevitable involves more than a Will
THE STATE DISTRIBUTES YOUR ASSETS IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WILL
Each state has its own "Laws of Intestacy" which dictate who will receive a share of our assets if you don't have a Will.
WHO WILL MAKE MEDICAL AND FINANCIAL DECISIONS FOR YOU WHEN YOU CAN'T
Complete estate planning involves more than just a Will. Enduring Powers of Attorney appoint someone to make important medical, financial and legal decisions for you when you can't. Therefore most of our lawyers will strongly encourage adding these important documents to your plan.
DON'T FORGET ABOUT SUPERANNUATION
It's also important to sign a binding death nomination to ensure your superannuation is distributed as you intend. You strictly don't need a lawyer for this document, nor for your statement of wishes, but they can help guide you through this process and ensure nothing is missed.
