How to get or update a will at no cost (this week only) – it’s an act of love
An uptick in South Africans buying life insurance suggests we’re becoming more aware of our mortality.
Do you have a will?
Is the one you have an updated version?
Banks and other financial services companies will draw up a will “for free”, but there are terms and conditions (i.e. it’s not really free).
It’s National Wills Week – you have until Friday (30 October) to approach law firms belonging to the Law Society of South Africa; they will draw up a will for you, for free.
