How To Plan Your Estate
It’s nice to know that your family is well looked after should anything happen to you.
Being proactive about estate planning will allow your family to deal with your estate according to your wishes in case of illness, accident or death. Our three comprehensive and affordable Estate Planning Services provide you with everything you need to be certain your family is looked after in the best possible way.
What is Estate Planning?
Wishes & Information
Capture and store all your wishes and important information safely online. Save your family from having to make difficult decisions and help them execute your wishes.
Create a Last Will & Testament to formalise who should take care of your estate and who will inherit. Be confident everything will be executed according to your wishes.
Make sure the nest egg for your children and later generations you worked so hard for isn’t eaten away by unforeseen costs when you pass away with the right insurance.

How it Works
Once you have decided to purchase the service best suited to your needs, you simply login and complete all the estate planning areas in your own time.
You will nominate two Authorised Contacts who will be informed by simplyEstate with a certificate and a secret identification code.
Whenever your circumstances change, you can review and update the information anytime to make sure it is up-to-date.
In case of illness, accident or death, simplyEstate will provide login access to your Authorised Contacts after completing the simplyEstate authentication process, so they can make sure your estate is administered according to your wishes.
Things you should know
1Stated savings are estimates only and depend if the estate administration will be undertaken by your family or a professional. The stated financial savings are made up of professional services fees including but not limited to legal, executor and accounting services, bill payments that would no longer be required but were not cancelled in time, late fees, dispute litigation and exclude any insurance policy payouts including but not limited to life and funeral insurances.
2simplyNotify is a tool provided by simplyEstate as part of the Estate Administration service offering. The notification service relies on the Estate Planning Member having captured all their service providers to allow their family or personal representative to issue notice of death to all with one click and request immediate termination of services to save money. This service is separately sold to Estate Administration Members and is not included in the Basic and Essential Estate Planning Services as outlined on this page. This service is included in the Assisted Estate Planning Service as outlined on this page.
3Estimated savings of $150 is based on legal fees being reduced by approximately 30 minutes by preparing your instructions hence reducing the need for a lawyer to discuss basic information about the purpose, function and options of a Last Will & Testament and taking down your beneficiaries’ details by making these available beforehand.
4Complimentary Estate Administration Support by simplyEstate as part of the Essential Estate Planning Service as outlined on this page is restricted to two hours. Additional hours can be purchased separately by Estate Administration Members as required. simplyEstate will be able to support an Estate Planning Member’s family or personal representative by providing an overview of the administration process, recommend a specialist where required or bespoke administrative tasks to which simplyEstate must agree to at the time of request by the surviving family or personal representative.
