#068 | Update My Will

I put this one off deliberately because a will is basically made null and void when you get married, so it seemed pointless to update my will before that.

My will needs are actually more basic now than what they were prior to being married.  My previous will was written when I had my son and I needed to ensure that he would be cared for financially and physically/emotionally in the event of my untimely death.  So that one was quite complicated as I didn’t have a spouse who would take immediate care of this.  As a result I have life insurance, death and disability benefits through my superannuation and several other ‘back-up plans’ that have been in place to take care of my son if for some reason I no longer could.

So for my update, I went the really simple option.  $25 and I was done.  I could even specify what preferences I had for my funeral, such as my wish to be cremated and to have buddhist influences for my funeral in preference to a more traditional ‘christian’ ritual.  It’s quite a weird feeling thinking about ones funeral, I wouldn’t say it scared me, or worried me, just a little odd.

Glad to have that one ticked off my list!
