Do you have a will & Power of Attorney in place?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

There are two crucial documents that can protect your dependents in future.

a) A will: This dictates what you want to happen to your assets if you die (eg, what happens to your house if you share it and arenít married). See Cheap and Free Wills.

b) A lasting Power of Attorney: This allows loved ones to take over your finances if you lose your faculties Ė see our Power of Attorney guide.

So we want to know which you already have in place.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
