New Will Kit is a practical service courtesy of the RESP Experts
TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2017 /CNW/ - Planning your estate just got a whole lot more manageable. Heritage Education Funds is proud to unveil their new comprehensive Will Kit; a user-friendly tool to help the average Canadian family navigate the complexities of drafting and organizing a will, without the need for a law degree. The kit includes everything the average Canadian needs to build an ironclad will. It's written in a friendly, comprehensive "fill in the blanks" manner, and guides the reader through the process step-by-step, ensuring every detail is accounted for—from distribution of estate to guardianship of any dependents.
"Wills aren't a subject Canadians really like to think about, but they're a critical part of successful long-term financial planning," says Heritage CEO, Jason Maguire. "As a father of three, I want to make sure my children are supported, even if I'm not around. This kit we've developed will help families do just that, minus the legal headaches."
Recent statistics show that approximately one-third of Canadians between the ages of 45 and 64 don't have a will.* That's a significant number of people whose families stand to lose a lot of money due to legal costs and taxes associated with dying intestate. Should they happen to have savings in an RESP, the money may not be distributed to the appropriate beneficiary. Worse still, they could forfeit any grant money they've accumulated in the plan.
The Heritage Will Kit is a value-added service from the company to help Canadians get prepared. Much like their popular RESP guide, it can be accessed directly from their website after filling out some basic information.
