Is Safewill Legit?

Safewill offers an affordable Will which is overseen by lawyers. It’s easy, it’s convenient and it’s legally secure…but is it all too good to be true? Read on for peace of mind on where your money’s going and why Safewill could be a good choice for you.

Is safewill legit

Who are Safewill, and where’d we come from?

We’re Australia’s highest rated online Will platform, on a mission to bring affordable end of life planning to everyday people. Made up of a team of passionate lawyers, tech experts and funeral directors, our team of experts work hard so that you won’t have to- combining quality and affordability to offer the best cremation and estate planning possible.

A value-driven approach

When our founder's close friend died suddenly in her 30s, Adam witnessed the turmoil of an unplanned estate firsthand. From that stress and upset, a vision to create an easier, simpler and accessible end-of-life prep system was born.

This belief that no grieving family should have to go through death admin alone is what kickstarted Safewill, and it’s what continues to motivate our team today. It’s also why we keep prices low, flexibility high, and why we’ll continue to keep making estate planning easier and easier for you.

With additions like Powers of Attorney, at-need and prepaid cremations, and an affiliated law firm also there to help administer deceased estates, Safewill now covers all your end of life needs without the hassle or cost of a traditional lawyer.

That’s real people, real purpose and very real problems- made easier by our compassionate team of experts.

How the Safewill platform works

Our online Will-writing platform allows you to write your Will from the comfort of your own home, and with the peace of mind that it’s been overseen by lawyers. Breaking down the process into easy step-by-step sections, it’s never been easier to input all your info into a legally valid format.

Once you’ve submitted your info, our team of specialist lawyers will oversee the your Will to ensure it’s all valid. They’ll give you the green light to get it signed and printed, and ensure you don’t get any nasty surprises down the line if it gets pulled up in court.

Need financial or medical Powers of Attorney? How about a guardian for your kids, or a trust for the wider family? Our platform makes it easy to make these tailored additions, at the most affordable fixed-fee rate in the industry. We even offer one-on-one calls with a member of our legal team, if you have any more needs or estate-planning questions.

Once you’ve printed and signed your Will, it will then be stored securely on our platform and free to update as many times as you like within the first year. As life then happens and the unexpected occurs, you can pop back in for changes with our $15 yearly subscription.

Whether that’s to add in your new property, update beneficiaries or just make a charity donation- our lawyers will be on standby to oversee and support at each step of the way.

Real people for real problems

From our award winning customer service team to nationally recognised lawyers, our team is well qualified to help you through. Whether that’s planning ahead or dealing with deceased estates- we’re just a phone call away to provide a world of support, whatever your needs.

Despite best intentions, nearly 30% of initial Safewill Will submissions are flagged by our lawyers for inaccuracies- meaning that they wouldn’t be recognised as valid in court. Our specialist legal team ensures that every Will is legally sound- meaning you don’t have to undercut your own peace of mind for a Will that later falls through. The best part? With Safewill, you also don’t have to break the bank to do so.

We also partner with over 170 charities to promote gift in Will donations. Making it easier than ever to make a meaningful impact with your estate plan, Safewill prioritises legacy gifting to help you support the people and causes which matter most. From nearby communities to global affairs, there's no gift too small or cause too big when it comes making that difference.
