Frequently asked questions
Select a topic
Every Victorian over 18 should have a legally valid will. It tells people what you want to happen to your belongings after you die. The clearer your instructions, the better it is for those you leave behind.
Without a will, you die intestate. This means state laws decide how your property and belongings are distributed and you don’t get a say. You also won’t be able to control who makes your final decisions. Costs can be higher and the time taken longer (typically 12 months or more).
While a will is a great way to let you express how your assets are distributed, it’s also a way to let your executor know how you wish to be remembered. This might be done through funeral instructions, or outlining who will look after your children and/or pets. Wills are also a great way to leave specific gifts, which can be anything important to you. From a secret scone recipe to your cricket ball signed by Shane Warne.
You can store your Will at The Victorian Will and Powers of Attorney Registry which is free for Victorian residents. It’s safe and secure and trusted by over 80,000 people across the state. For details, go here.
Yes. Every State Trustees Will is legally valid for use in Australia if filled out correctly online or with your Will Writer.
The Online Will is suitable for those 18 and above with straight forward circumstances. If you need assistance with more complex circumstances, it’s best to arrange a Will appointment. Complex circumstances might include provisions for special needs/disabilities bequests, trusts, complex investments or property, or leaving someone out of a Will that could contest it later.
Unfortunately, no. By law, each person needs their own individual Will document. That means you need to sign your own will individually (not jointly) and use your own email address. You also cannot register a second Online Will from the same email address.
You have 90 days from account creation to complete and pay for your Online Will. You can update it at any time during the 90 period. After this time, you will need to purchase a new will.
State Trustees use enterprise-grade multi-layered security, and we have an in-house team that monitors our systems. The Will you fill out with us is created on a highly secure platform and your Will purchase and card details are protected by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
