Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is a perfect opportunity to reflect on what’s been important in your life and what you’d like to see supported in the future.

A better future for New Zealand families

Making a will is the only way you can be sure your wishes will be followed after you die. It also means less confusion and heartache for your loved ones in their time of grief. If you don't make a will, part or all of your estate may end up going to people you never intended to benefit because the law will dictate how your estate is distributed.

Leaving a gift in your will offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on what’s been important in your life, and what you’d like to see supported in the future. 

You’ll also need to think about who is to receive what and how. Gifts can be anything you own including specific items, money, property or a percentage of your estate. Information about the different ways in which estates can be distributed can be provided by a professional in this area. 

Your will also offers the opportunity to say what you’d like to happen at your funeral. This can greatly help your loved ones in their time of grief.
