Essex (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Essex solicitors FJG have launched a new campaign called ‘Don’t do it by halves, don’t leave it to chance’. They’re targeting the estimated 50% of the population who haven’t made a will, and have launched a new service, WillPlus, designed to make it simple – and cheaper – for people to plan for the future.
Kate Wombwell, a Solicitor and Partnership Member at FJG, says: “All adults should make a will and a lasting power of attorney (LPA). It’s not pessimistic to think about it, it’s caring for your loved ones. A will comes into place when you die, but an LPA is used if you can’t manage your finances or make decisions about your health and welfare for some reason – usually to do with physical or mental incapacity.
“If you’ve got these two documents in place, that’s good for your peace of mind, but it also makes things much easier for your family if you should die or become too ill to manage. The new WillPlus service lets clients pick and choose. So, a single person could have a will and an LPA, while a couple might have two simple wills and four LPAs, to cover every eventuality. Whatever combination they go for, it means a big discount from the cost of doing the will and LPA separately.”
FJG can also register customers’ wills with a secure online register, which contacts FJG if anyone is looking for their will. Kate Wombwell says, “This allows us to answer their query if it’s legitimate, which protects your privacy and the interests of your beneficiaries.” The new service is available now, with full details available on the FJG website – http://www.fjg.co.uk – or by calling the company on 01206 217585.
Also, between 12th and 16th September, FJG is running Clacton Wills Week, offering customers at its Clacton office simple single wills for £50 +VAT and ‘mirror’ wills for £80 +VAT.
