National Wills Week 11-15 September 2023

On todays episode of the Retinal Realities Podcast we are joined by Sonya Lee Mahabeer who is an admitted attorney who is passionate about ethics, human rights, commercial law, including financial planning law, ESG and Legal Education. She is a member of Retina South Africa and is involved in the Youth and Governance Sub Committees.

11-15 September is National Wills Week and Sonya shares with us some insights which will aim to create awareness about drafting a will and testament. She will also discuss the objectives of a will and some legislative requirements.  Sonya believes that a will is the most important document that one would ever sign during their lifetime and encourages everyone to use this week to get legal advice and ensure that their will is drafted and regularly reviewed.

Having a will is an important part of estate planning and is essential for ensuring that your wishes are carried out after you pass away. A will allows you to designate who will receive your assets and property, and how they will be distributed. It also allows you to name a guardian for any minor children, and to appoint an executor to manage the distribution of your estate.
