    This pre-recorded webinar, hosted by Macular Disease Foundation Australia and presented by a lawyer specialising in estate administration, considers the legalities of drafting a Will.

    We know that family and loved ones come first. However, you may wish to consider a bequest, to allow us to continue our sight-saving work.

    A bequest is a meaningful way to make a lasting impact on the eye health and the lives of future generations. Bequests help us fund ground-breaking research into macular disease, as well as support the 8.5 million Australians over the age of 50 who are at risk of, or living with, macular disease.

    While many people prefer not to think about estate planning, it doesn’t have to be a complicated process.

    This webinar considers all the legalities of drafting a Will, including;

    • What is a bequest?
    • What is a Will? 
    • Estate versus non-estate assets
    • What makes a Will legally binding? 
    • Different forms of gifts
    • Protecting your estate

    Because every person’s situation is different, and laws vary depending on where you live, the advice provided is general in nature.
