Your will options

Making a plan for what happens after you die is the best way to ensure that the people and things you love are looked after. It’s easy to create your Will with Public Trust and can make the process of managing your passing less stressful for your family.

STEP 1 - Preparation

You’ll need to consider who will be your beneficiaries, what valuable assets you own, who you would like to receive them, who will be your executor, who you want to care for any minor children and what you would like for your funeral.

STEP 2 - Consultation

Online, complete the document in your own time. In person, one of our experts will lead you through the process of preparing your will, and answer any questions you may have. This can take from 20 minutes online for a simple will, to 1.5 hours in person for a complex will.

STEP 3 - Review

Review what has been created to check all details are correct. If you create a will in-person with us,we will review and send it to you for approval before signing.

STEP 4 - Signing

If you create your will in one of our customer centres we’ll help you witness and sign your will before storing it in our vault if that is what you want. This takes around 15 minutes, and we’ll give you a copy to take home with you. Online wills also need to be printed out and signed in front of two witnesses.
