3 in 5 adults do not have a Will

Most adults either don't have a Will in place or have given no thought to writing one, according to a recent study.

YouGov polled 2,089 over-18s on behalf of insurance company Royal London, with 60% admitting they have no Will and a third (33%) haven't considered writing one.

77% of cohabiting couples have not written a Will, despite the surviving partner having no legal entitlement to inherit an estate if their partner was to die.

A valid and up-to-date Will ensures an estate is distributed according to the deceased's wishes, while also potentially reducing the inheritance tax liability for the beneficiaries.
