One Day, You’re Going To Die. Here’s How To Prepare For It.

It’s a fact of life that we’re all going to die at some point. While it’s not something you probably want to think about, you can make things a lot easier on yourself (and your family) if you get everything in order now. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Your inevitable demise is hopefully not on your mind too often, but it’s still something you should think about long enough to get everything in order. Doing so ensures that everything in your life is organized so others can see to your wishes what you want to happen after you’re gone, what you own, and how to handle a variety of situations.
  • If this sounds daunting, don’t worry too much. Talk to us, we will advise you on planning for your loved ones. We make it affordable at S$ 500 for all-inclusive services.
  • Planning for your death is two things: what happens after you die, and what happens if you’re ill and unable to handle decisions yourself. We provide advice on both perspective-writing your last WILL and/or Testament or executing your Lasting Power of Attorney.
  • You do not pass through this life, it passes through you. You experience it, you interpret it, you act, and then somehow it is different. That happens constantly. You are changing the world. You always have been but, after your demise, do not permit others to change your intent, your Will, and your legacy to your loved ones. Set it in writing in your last Will.
