FREE Wills Service

UNISON operates an initial free Online Wills Service for Members for Standard Wills and your spouse/partner if drawing up a Mirror Will.

To use this Service you or your spouse/partner must have been a member of UNISON for a minimum of 4 weeks.

Family members will be eligible for our Standard Wills Service for a discounted rate of £139.50 for a Single Will, and £223.50 for Mirror Wills, provided they are straightforward.

If this is not your first Will or your circumstances or wishes are complicated your application will be referred to one of Thompson’s Wills Specialists because you require more detailed advice to complete your Will.  Examples include that you have been previously married, you own property abroad, you wish to make provision for vulnerable family members or to consider protection from the impact of care fees. The fixed and low cost for Thompsons Specialist Wills Services is from £180.

It couldn’t be easier, UNISON’s unique interactive wills interview will take you through the process online and will generate your Will documents for electronic download.  To access this service please click here

It is easy to assume that your property and possessions will automatically pass to your loved ones when you die, but sadly this is not always the case. Writing a will is the only way to guarantee that your estate is administered and divided in accordance with your wishes – so it’s important you take the time now to make a will.

If a person dies without making a will they are classed as ‘intestate’. This means the estate becomes subject to a strict set of inheritance laws, which do not take the deceased’s wishes into account.  As you can imagine, this situation can lead to complications for your loved ones when they come to sorting your affairs, particularly if you are unmarried or have step-children.
