Simplifying will-making to ease the burden on those left behind

Making a will isn’t on the radar for a vast majority of adults in NSW. It’s viewed as too complicated and time consuming, resulting in an administrative burden on the family of a loved one following their death.



Taking the confusion out of wills  

The NSW End of Life planner has been developed to help people through the process of planning for end of life. It helps them to ensure their affairs are managed in the way they want them to be. It helps break down what is required for a will, Enduring Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship, before an appointment with a professional advisor or solicitor. 

Seamless advice 

The planner provides a seamless experience for those left behind and for those planning for the end. It provides professional advice on options to prepare a will with the NSW Trustee & Guardian and how to find a solicitor.
