Frequently Asked Questions
Still wondering whether you really need a will? What are the real benefits? Check out some of our frequently asked questions.
How quickly can you process my will?
It depends slightly on when you get in touch with us, and how quickly we are able to connect with you to gather the necessary information.
We can technically process within 1-2 working days, but it will depend somewhat on your availability and the complexity of your will.
Why should I make a will?
Making a will has a number of benefits, but primarily these are:
Complete control over asset distribution
It enables you to have control over the distribution of your assets. If you don’t have a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to the Intestate Succession Act. For some, this may be an acceptable allocation, but for the sake of a relatively small financial outlay, we believe it always makes sense to explicitly outline your wishes.
Handling of special requests
A will can also be used to introduce special requests, or instructions. This may include things such as guardianship of your children or the creation of a trust for them.
Adapting to changes in your life
You may over the course of your life need to create a new will. For example, if you divorced and then remarried, you may wish to create a new will to alter the distribution of your assets accordingly.
What should I do after getting my will?
Once you receive your will, you need to store it in a secure location. Please also make sure your family and/or close friends are also aware of its existence, and able to access it when the time comes.
A valid will will make the process simpler for your beneficiaries after your passing, and ensure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes.
Can I include CPF beneficiary in my will?
No. CPF money can’t be distributed within a written will. You may specify the beneficiaries and the split (if more than one person) via the CPF board directly.
In the event that no beneficiary is specified at the time of your passing, the CPF board would transfer all of the money to the Public Trustee’s Office and made available to your next of kin.
