Writing a will
Making a will allows you to make important decisions that affect your family and dependants after your death. A will can spare your loved ones unnecessary work and heartache at a time when they are least able to cope with it.
As an NASUWT member, you have access to a free online wills portal, operated by BBH Legal Services/Thompsons Solicitors on behalf of the NASUWT. The portal allows you to generate your own will, as well as a mirror will for your spouse or partner, free of cost in your own time and at your convenience.
A reduced-rate will writing service is also provided by the NASUWT for members’ families.
If your will is complex, you will be referred to a wills specialist for advice on a bespoke will, for which there will be a discounted fee payable if you wish to go ahead. BBH reserve the right to make a charge if your will contains complex tax provisions or you make substantial changes once the will has been drafted.
If you are a member in England and Wales, you can use Thompsons online portal to start writing your free will.
If you are a member in Northern Ireland, please use Thompsons Northern Ireland’s separate facility (pdf) to start your free will.
If you are a member in Scotland, please use Thompsons Scotland’s separate facility to start your free will.
Probate administration and lasting power of attorney
A reduced rate probate administration and lasting power of attorney (LPA) service is also available to NASUWT members and their families. You will only need to complete a simple questionnaire.
