Creating a will 'has never been more important'

Creating a will 'has never been more important'

Creating a will has never been more important than it is at this moment in time due to the current economic climate.

That is according to Brian McMillan, director general of the Society of Will Writers, who believes there are several factors behind why a lot of people are still not opting to put together an effective last testament.

Mr McMillan explained that in general "people are just cautious" and are put off making a will by the "fear factor" that by doing so they may be tempting fate or apathy insofar as they think "there is always tomorrow".

Research published last week (November 1st) by Macmillan Cancer Support revealed that 70 per cent of all Britons have not created such a document or even made any plans as to what they will leave behind.

However, the Society of Will Writers official urged these individuals to change their attitude as they cover everything and are "not only about money".
