FAQs

How does the campaign work?

Members of the public aged 55 and over contact one of the law firms taking part in a Free Wills Month campaign at some time during the designated month to request an appointment.

The attorney will help to draw up a Will that accurately reflects the wishes of the individual or couple. Those taking up the offer are under no obligation to leave a gift to one of the Free Wills Month charities, however, we earnestly hope that many will see this as a chance to help their favorite cause.

Who is the campaign open to?

Free Wills Month is intended for Individuals or couples aged 55 and over. In the case of couples making ‘mirror’ Wills, it is sufficient that one has reached the age of 55.

Do the charities get a copy of each Will?

No. The only documentation that is sent on to us is the confidential declaration form which asks questions such as where people heard of the campaign, their age and whether or not they have left a gift to one or more of the Free Wills Month charities.

What happens if a Will is complicated?

We have agreed that the campaign will cover the writing of ‘simple’ Wills. If your Will needs some more work, the attorney may ask you to pay the balance yourself, however, most people only require simple Wills.
