Drafting up your Will can be a daunting task. It forces you to think about your own demise directly and beyond. Regardless, drafting a Will has its benefits.

In a Will, you are at liberty to choose who your executors or trustees are, how to distribute your assets, arrange for Guardians to be appointed if you have children etc.

Although you can amend and redraft many Wills throughout your lifetime, it becomes concrete on death. The last drawn Will will be valid and instructions on how to manage your estate will rely on the last drawn Will.

You can register your Will with the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) in their Will Registry. Even though they do not keep a copy of your Will, details of your Will is recorded (i.e. Date of Will, Beneficiaries) in their database.
