Free Wills make it even easier
We always recommend you use a solicitor to make your Will, to ensure that your final wishes are carried out just as you’d have wanted.
Our Will making partners offer free or discounted Will writing services. So whether you want to make your Will at a local solicitor’s office, at home or online, there’s something to suit you. There is no obligation to remember the Society if you use these services, but we very much hope that you will wish to.
Free Wills via a local solicitor
Our membership of the National Free Wills Network means we can offer a limited number of simple Wills or mirror Wills for free to those aged 55 and over, via over 800 local solicitor firms. The service is free to you, with the Macular Society paying a fixed discounted fee for each Will. Once you have registered your interest using the form below, we share your details with the Network, who send you full instructions and a list of participating local solicitors.
Free Wills online
Bequeathed makes it easy to start your Will online, and complete it in a way that suits you. You get all the support and guidance you need to make a free online Will, including a free half an hour consultation with a solicitor. If you need further legal advice, one of Bequeathed’s partner solicitors will give you a price for completing your Will by phone or face to face. Bequeathed operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and anyone over 18 is welcome to use the service. The Macular Society is working with Bequeathed and other sight loss charities to make the service fully accessible. Start your will online here or visit bequeathed.org/macular
Fixed price Wills with a home visit
The Goodwill Partnership offer a discounted fixed price Will, starting with a home visit to take your instructions. Your Will is then drafted and checked by a solicitor and posted to you for checking, signing and witnessing. You would pay a fixed price for this service.
Please note that some solicitors are able to provide a telephone appointment or a home visit to take your instructions.
If you’d prefer to pay for your Will yourself, you can search for local solicitors on the Law Society, Law Society of Scotland, and Law Society of Northern Ireland websites, using your postcode. Solicitors for the Elderly, a membership organisation of solicitors specialising in issues affecting older people, is also searchable by postcode.
