Free Wills Month – March 2020

24 February 2020

As reported in the winter edition of Pensions Newsline, during 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 March 2020. If you would like to take part, please follow these steps:

  • Visit https://freewillsmonth.org.uk/ (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 March.

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).
