This section brings you easy to understand information on legal matters that you are likely to encounter in later life. Issues such as will writing, lasting powers of attorney, trusts, probate and inheritance matters.
Although they seem complicated, and often raise issues that people would rather not confront, it is best to start thinking sooner rather than too late about who you are going to leave your money to when you die and who is going to look after you and your affairs if you are unable to.
Our guides, written by specialist lawyers, try to set out the main principles and questions raised when writing a will or drawing up a lasting power of attorney. RIA offer a discounted will and lasting power of attorney service to RIA members and this offer can be accessed through the Member Benefits link in the My Profile area.
