This year we are pleased to announce that the Society plan for our members will continue to be underwritten by the UK’s leading insurance company Hiscox who have been providing cover for over 100 years. Any given policy is only valid for one calendar year.
As soon as you have decided to make your Will – and the sooner the better! – you may prefer to discuss your personal affairs in the comfort and privacy of your own home. There are many Will Writing services advertised, but it is vital to choose one that is competent, professional and has the appropriate expertise and experience. All members of The Society of Will Writers go through a stringent vetting procedure and continuing training to ensure that they are suitable persons to properly write your Will. Any one can call themselves a Will Writer – you can even ‘do it yourself’ with forms available from both high street and online retailers. But, only a properly trained professional can ensure that your Will is correctly drafted. Home-made or badly drafted Wills can be just as bad (or even worse) than having no Will at all.
Don’t be afraid to ask the Will Writer if he or she is a member of the Society. they will have an ID card and most likely a business card, here you will see one of the sets of Designatory Letters awarded by the Society: Cmpn.SWW, FSWW, ASWW, MSWW and Affiliated Membership (Aff.SWW). All are a demonstration to the public our standing in education and training. If your Will Writer cannot show this, think again. Why risk your entire estate to be dealt with under a Will drawn up by anyone other than a trained professional?
