To date, we have helped more than 370 000 people get their Wills on place. We are committed to changing the statistics of our nation. To help combat this statistic, the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) promotes National Wills week, every year, encouraging more people to take this task seriously and get their affairs in order. This year, National Wills Week is from 13 to 17 September. We offer free Will drafting year-round and we’re making September Wills Month!

KINDERS MET SPESIALE BEHOEFTES BENODIG GESPESIALISEERDE BOEDELBEPLANNING
Die gedagte dat jy eendag gaan afsterf en jou volwasse kinders gaan agterlaat is moeilik, maar dit word makliker verwerk met die wete dat hulle finansieel na hulself kan omsien – en hopelik kan enige nalatenskap van jou kant af hulle verder van hulp wees. Maar wat van die ouers van kinders met spesiale behoeftes? Wat gebeur as jou kind nooit in die posisie gaan wees om die huis te verlaat nie en die finansiële verantwoordelikheid wat elke ouer dra, nooit skietgee nie? Om die waarheid te sê, die verantwoordelikheid word moontlik net groter soos die jare aanstap. Wat sal gebeur as jy afsterf? Wie sorg vir jou volwasse kind met spesiale behoeftes? Wie sorg vir hulle finansies? Ouers van kinders met spesiale behoeftes moet sekere faktore in ag neem in hulle boedelplan vir hul kinders.
CELEBRATING WOMEN LEAVING A LEGACY
August is Women’s Month and the 9th of August signifies National Women’s Day where we celebrate and acknowledge the economic, political, social, and cultural achievements of women from all walks of life. It’s not easy wearing multiple caps, especially for working moms. Whether you’re a mom, an aunt, or a single working woman – regardless of where you are in your journey – it can be tricky to stay positive and motivated and still help carry those around you. It’s all worth it, though, when you see other women rise to the challenge. Building a legacy is something that takes time. It’s like a long-term investment. Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of the long-term goal. Defining your vision allows you to stay focussed on what it is you want to achieve and how to achieve the legacy you’ll leave behind. It’s the same reason we work so hard to help more South Africans get their wills in place. Without a Will – legacies are lost. A will forms the basis of a blueprint for planning your legacy – and we often see that it’s the women’s influence in the home that drives getting the household affairs in order. It’s probably in our make-up or our instinctive nature to care and protect.

Trusts – ‘n ja of ‘n nee?
Daar is ’n wêreledwye wanopvatting dat trusts net vir die rykes bedoel is en dat die voordele van ’n trust slegs deur “trustfondsbabas” geniet word. Hierdie wanopvatting word dikwels voortgesit deur verkeerde inligting en onkunde. Wanneer dit korrek opgestel is, verskaf dit finansiële voorsiening, die veilige bewaring van bates en sekerheid vir begunstigdes.

Special needs children need specialist estate planning
Being a parent is both challenging and rewarding. From the day our children are born they need us for everything. Then, one day, they spread their wings and fly the proverbial coop. But what about parents of children who have special needs? What happens if your child is never in a position to leave home and the financial responsibility that all parents bear, never alleviates – in fact, potentially increases with age? What happens if you were to pass away? Who looks after your adult special needs child? Who manages their finances?

Alex Simeonides chats to Tony Blewitt about testamentary trusts
A testamentary trust is a trust that is established according to a deceased individual’s wish in their valid Last Will and Testament.
