Who will be the executor of your Will?

An Executor is the person appointed to carry out the wishes of your Will. An Executor must be above 18 years old, not a bankrupt and is of sound mind. An Executor can also be a beneficiary under your Will. You should inform the person who you want to appoint as your Executor and obtain his consent. Doing so can help you avoid a situation where he is unwilling to act as the Executor of your Will.

While it is not required by law, our E-Will generator makes it mandatory for you to appoint an alternate Executor. This is because if your main Executor is unable, incapable or unwilling to carry out his duties, your alternate Executor will come in to take the place as the Executor of your Will.
We live in today’s world where many aspects of our lives involve some digital interaction, be it having an email account, social media account, or even a cryptocurrency account. We encourage you to additionally appoint a Digital Executor to take care of your digital accounts and assets therein. Ideally, he should be someone who is more well-versed with technology. However, he can also be the same person as your main and alternate Executors.
If you have children below 18 years old, you should appoint a legal guardian (who is not your spouse) who will be responsible for your children’s care, welfare and education until they reach 18 years old, if you and your spouse are no longer living.

Who would you like to give your assets to?

A beneficiary is the person you wish to give your assets to upon your death. Most of the people wish to leave their assets to their spouse first, and when their spouse dies, to their children. 

In the event a beneficiary is below 18 years old, the assets bequeathed to him under your Will will have to be held by your Executor until the minor turns 18 years old.

Your assets are your money and property. They can be either:
immovable assets (for e.g. tangible personal property, land, houses)
movable assets (for e.g. bonds, cash, jewelleries, company shares, unit trusts, motor vehicle)
digital assets (for e.g. online accounts, social media accounts, and money in various online accounts such as cryptocurrency accounts, trading accounts)

Please key in their share proportion accordingly. Please note that the percentage split across all beneficiaries must add up to 100%. Below is an example for reference.

Who will be the beneficiary in case everyone in your family dies at the same time?

A ‘simultaneous death clause’ is something you should consider when writing your Will. It is also known as a ‘titanic clause’ which functions as a catch-all in the unlikely but possible event that a whole family perishes in a disaster together. In the event such a scenario befalls an entire family, having a ‘simultaneous death clause’ will make will administration easier.

Do you want to list out all your assets in your Will?

Solely for the convenience and ease of reference for your Executor so as to help him locate your assets easily, you can annex as a general guide a list of some of the assets and properties which you currently hold. The said listshall not in any way prejudice the terms of your Will and is not necessarily exhaustive or indicative of all your assets and properties, moveable or immovable and whatsoever and wheresoever situated whether as of the date hereof or as the date your Will takes effect.

In the future, you can always update this list of assets and properties and attach it to your Will.
