What happens if I die without a will?

By Gina Vliet

Having a will isn’t just about the distribution of your stuff. It’s about enabling those you care about most to close out your life with as little fuss as possible.

Whether it’s a major life change, a health concern, or ultimately how you’d like to leave this world, telling people your wishes and what you need is a critical aspect of getting your ducks in a row as you navigate change. A Will is the legal document that communicates just how you’d like to close out your life.

I’ve put together a video explaining why it’s good idea to have a will when you die. It explores life events that should trigger a will review and looks at things to consider when creating/updating your will.

My hope is that after watching this video you will be encouraged to have a will and be better able to keep it up to date and valid. It’s one of the most loving things you can do for those you leave behind.
