Free Wills Month – October 2019

26 September 2019

As reported in the summer edition of Pensions Newsline, during October and March each year a group of charities work together to offer people aged over 55 the opportunity to have their wills written or updated free of charge. If you're making your will as a couple, only one of you needs to be over 55.

The next Free Wills Month starts on 1 October 2019. If you would like to take part, please follow these steps:

  • Visit (There is no telephone number available. If you do not have internet access, you may wish to ask somebody to help you.)
  • Scroll down to this section of the page:

  • Enter your details, including an email address; you’ll receive a reminder when the campaign starts.
  • When the campaign starts, you will get access to the details of local participating law firms.
  • Make an appointment directly with the participating solicitor during October.

Appointments are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The Free Wills Month campaign pays for simple wills. If your will is more complex and would need additional work, the solicitor may ask you to pay for this. You should check this when booking your appointment.

We believe that this campaign is a good opportunity for our members, however, it is not being run by the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme. If you have any questions about the campaign, please refer directly to the Free Wills Month website (see above).
