Get your affairs in order

Getting your affairs in order is an important part of preparing for the future, for you and your loved ones.

It is important to make sure the right people know your plans, where to find everything and any important information that will make things easier for them should they need it.  

Getting your affairs in order can be a different experience for everybody. However, it generally refers to:

  • Making a will
  • Preparing documents that will help others to make decisions for you if you're not able to make them yourself such as:
  • Thinking about your future healthcare and treatment and putting your thoughts in writing through Advance Care Planning.
  • Nominating a beneficiary for your superannuation and insurance
  • Sorting out legal and financial paperwork and assembling documents (and any related access passwords) in a place that is accessible to the right people.
