You know the benefits of having a digital Will. You know why they’re a great alternative to state and public trustees, why they're cheaper and why they're better for a busy, modern lifestyle.

If we’ve convinced you that far, you might now be weighing up your options for writing your online Will (for example, the differences between Willed vs. Safewill).

And whilst we might be a little biased, we’ve come up with 10 reasons why Safewill is the right choice for you, and your end-of-life planning.

In fact, we found it so easy that we even added a bonus reason to make it up to 11. So let’s dive in.

1. Value driven at our core

When our founder Adam Lubofsky’s close friend died suddenly in her 30s, he witnessed the stress of an unplanned estate firsthand. From that stress and upset, a vision to create an easier, simpler and more accessible end-of-life prep system was born. Grieving families shouldn't have to go through that admin alone. And no one should have to feel like legal fees exclude them from getting the estate plan they deserve.

With Safewill's affordable and accessible platform, they now don't have to. With additions like Powers of Attorney, at-need and prepaid cremations, and an affiliated law firm to help administer deceased estates now meaning all end of life and deceased estate needs are covered.

2. Trusted by Australians

Proudly Australia’s highest-rated Will platform, our services help thousands of Australians every month. We have over 1,300 five-star reviews from satisfied customers. Just read them yourself to see.

3. Nationally recognised

We were pretty happy to be featured in Deloitte’s Top 10 Rising Stars for our achievements. Not to mention, Safewill has also been featured in leading Australian publications, including Vogue, The Australian, 7 News, Herald Sun and The Daily Telegraph.

4. Wills expertise

For your peace of mind, every Will created on our platform is checked by our team to make sure you’ve filled it in correctly, so it’s less likely there’ll be hidden complications for you down the road.

7. Affiliated law firm

Our affiliate law firm Safewill Legal offers easy and affordable Probate and Letters of Administration services. Our lawyers, Isabelle Marcarian and Lauren Solomonson, were both Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 finalists for their accomplishments in Wills and Estates.
