Surprising Ways Willed is Flipping the Death Narrative

We grow up knowing that death is a natural part of life, yet death is often brushed aside as a problem for our future selves. At Willed, we recognise that the death process requires planning, thoughtful communication and a whole lotta organisation. Luckily, we’re here to help. From writing your legal Will online to prepaid funerals, there are so many ways you can prepare for death.

Below, you’ll find a list of services the Willed team offers – services that are innovating the way people perceive death. 

Digital Vault

When you write your legal Will with Willed, you unlock your Digital Vault. This is where you can leave videos and written messages for the people you love, helping them to remember you in whatever way you’d like. This is just one of the innovative and unique ideas you can look into when planning.

Funeral Wishes Planner

Preplanning your funeral may seem macabre, but it’s actually an important step in organising your estate, and it takes the onus off your loved ones to plan it themselves, should you die before you get a chance to tell them your wishes. It helps save your loved ones unnecessary costs and stress, so it’s a good thing to tick off before the final bell tolls.

Online Will

Ah, writing your legal Will online – our specialty! With Willed, you can write your legal Will from the comfort of your couch, or bed, (well, really anywhere other than the sauna or spa, we’d say) and have it all done and dusted in 15 minutes.

Once the ink has dried (metaphorically, of course), our lawyers will check it over for you and let you know if everything’s in top shape. Lastly, make that negroni you’ve been eyeing off the bar cart and say cheers to a job well done.

For the first year with Willed, you can update anytime for no added cost. After that, it’s an optional $15 per year for unlimited updates to your Will, if you’d like the peace of mind. Opt out at any time, ‘cause we make things easy like that. 

Prepaid Funerals

It can be stressful to think about the end of your life, but it does come for all of us someday, and it pays to be prepared so you get the proper send-off. Prepaying for your funeral means that your family doesn't have to fork out their savings when the time comes, and it makes the transition less stressful for those who are grieving.

So, what is it exactly? A prepaid funeral is a legally binding contract between you and a funeral service provider. It ensures that your final wishes are met, for when the day comes and that you are celebrated the way you want to be! With Willed, you can prepay for your funeral upfront or in instalments – it’s completely up to you.

Probate service

With Willed, you can arrange probate in 3 easy steps:

This is where our expert lawyers will listen to your personal situation, explain the probate process, discuss costs in detail and let you know whether or not you require this service (as some circumstances do not merit probate!)
