Other Considerations

The Equity Release Information Centre (AskERIC) has partnered with Beneficial Trust & Will Co (BTWC) to provide you with comprehensive Estate Planning and Will Writing services.

BTWC offer comprehensive solutions via a national network of advisers from Simple Wills to Funeral Plans, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate services and
much more.

Remember that without a will:

  • If you’re not married, your partner may receive nothing
  • If you have children, the courts will appoint guardians in the absence of your instructions
  • If you have children from a previous relationship, they could be disinherited
  • The people you would like to benefit from your estate may not receive anything

Why do I need a Lasting Power of Attorney?

If you become unable to manage your affairs for any reason and have not appointed another person as an attorney to act on your behalf, your personal affairs would become the responsibility of the Court of Protection. This will mean that the person you would like to make decisions for you may have no powers at all to act on your behalf.

What are the benefits of a Prepaid Funeral Plan?

It is predicted that by 2021 the average cost of a funeral will be in the region of £5,400. Choosing a BTWC Funeral Plan is one of the most effective and affordable methods by which to protect your family and loved ones against the burden of rising funeral costs and to spare them the distress of having to make difficult decisions as to what your preferences for your funeral may be.

As one of the UK’s most affordable prepaid funeral plans, and with no medical or age restrictions, funeral costs can be fixed at todays costs with nothing further for those left behind to pay towards the funeral directors fees and services.
