OVER A MILLION SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES DO NOT HAVE A LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
The South African government is the single largest employer in the country with over 1.3-million employees across multiple sectors including teachers, nurses, doctors, municipal workers, police officers and defence force members. It came to light recently that as many as 1-million government employees do not have a Last Will and Testament in place. Capital Legacy launched a division 18 months ago exclusively to help educate and support the government sector and help more government employees get their Wills in order. The results have been nothing short of astonishing, with already over 15 000 government employees getting their Wills drafted with Capital Legacy. Our unique KeyPlan™ is designed specifically for government employees and offers free Will drafting, cover for legal fees at death, immediate cash benefits, plus cover for your children’s education.

NATIONAL WILLS WEEK – TIME TO GET YOUR AFFAIRS IN ORDER
Your Will is probably the most important document you’ll ever sign and the consequences of passing away without a valid Will in place can be dire. Without a Will in place, everything you leave behind is distributed according to intestate succession law – which is usually not in line with your plan for the inheritance that you’ll one day leave behind for your loved ones. If you have any assets in the form of money, jewellery, property, investments etc., or if you have children who are minors, you need to have a valid Will in place. Every year the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) promotes National Wills Week, where they encourage law firms to offer free Will drafting in an effort to raise awareness around the importance of Wills. There is an inconceivable statistic that more than 75% of South Africans pass away without a valid Will in place. National Wills Week is the ideal time to get your affairs in order. Get your Will drafted for free, online, on the phone or in person.
