Protect Your Family by Making a Will

In addition to insurance, having a valid Will is essential to your family's financial protection.

When you were younger and had no dependants and fewer assets, you may not have taken the time to write your Will. But now, with more people counting on you, having the right insurance, an up-to-date Will and other protection is essential in the event that you should die prematurely or become incapacitated by an illness or injury.

We've created this section to help give you a general overview of Wills and other protection and why making a Will should be an important part of your family's financial plan.
