According to Today’s Wills & Probate, A new report from The National Will Register has found that 42% of adults in the UK have not spoken to anyone about what should happen to their estate upon their passing.

 

Here’s the excerpt from that survey:

Even among over 55s, three in ten have not spoken to anyone on the subject and half of those are unlikely to in the future – a figure that grows to 58% across all age groups. Mainly because it is too morbid (25%; 13% among over 55s), or there is a lack of concern for what happens after death (16%; 19% among over 55s).

There is a generational improvement on these figures, with 49% of respondents’ parents not discussing any instructions or details of a will. Only a third of parents (34%) had told them where to find a will.
