Wills should be reviewed when there are major events occur in your life that might require updating or revising beneficiary designations.  This is includes a marriage, divorce, the death of a spouse, child, grandchild, parent or sibling; or other significant personal or financial changes.  You may also want to review other types of documents requiring beneficiary designations from time to time, to determine if any similar inclusions or exclusions are needed, such as:
  • Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)
  • Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)
  • Life Income Funds (LIF)
  • Locked-in Retirement Account (LIRA)
New beneficiaries can be included in your will, or existing beneficiaries removed, with the help of a qualified lawyer from our office.  Please call us today if you are considering a change of beneficiary.
