Myth or fact?
A will is a legal document that sets out what will happen after you die to (most of) your property and any minor children. While not everyone needs a will, most people do. Preparing a will can ensure those you leave behind are looked after, and that the things you own go to the people you want. And it can help achieve fairness, accuracy, and peace of mind all around.
