UK Infographic Signifies Importance of a Valid Will

Last will and testament

While many people forego creating a will during their lifetime, this is especially true in the UK where almost 56 percent of the adult population does not possess a valid will. 

This shocking statistic caught the attention of Whitehead Monckton, a Kent law firm who subsequently teamed up with Reflect digital to create an infographic outlining the importance to UK citizens of having a will. 

The infographic, entitled, Do You Hold a Valid Will?, conveys a powerful message regarding the significance of obtaining a will.  Through numbers, questions, and omnipotent realities, the infographic poses thought provoking concepts including the repercussions of passing away without a will.  This infographic is a positive step towards educating individuals about the positive and negative implications of estate planning.

Special thanks to Aedan Kiernan (Reflect Digital) for bringing this article to my attention.
