Is Your Will Up To Date

Research commissioned by SFE has revealed that almost half (47%) of brits who have a will haven’t updated it for more than five years, meaning nearly half of wills in the UK are likely to be out-of-date. Of those, a third (33%) haven’t updated it for over 7 years, and a fifth (21%) haven’t dusted it off in more than a decade.

SFE’s research has revealed that:

  • Almost half (44%) of people realise the law decides who will inherit your assets if you don’t have a will in place.

  • Only a third of people (33%) realise that a couple living together without marriage or civil partnership won’t inherit each other’s assets without a will in place.

  • Only a third of people (34%) realise their spouse (wife, husband, civil partner) won’t automatically inherit their full estate without a will in place.
