Making a Will
A Will states how you want to transfer your assets – your possessions and property - after your death.
If you pass away without a will, known as dying intestate, your estate will be distributed according to a state government-determined formula. Chances are, this formula won’t reflect your wishes, so it is important to speak with your FinChoice financial adviser to arrange for a legal expert to prepare a formally drafted will of your own deciding.
