Military Wills

When an MOD 106 Will just won't do

All military personnel are “strongly advised [by the MOD] to draw up a will with a solicitor prior to deployment.”* A simple 106 will may not be enough: 
  • If you own property or other valuable assets*
  • If you want to make "special wishes"*
  • If you are not married but want to make provision for your partners*
  • If you are in a civil partnership*
  • If you want to make arrangements for childrens' guardianship
  • If you are in your 2nd (or more) marriage and need to make provision for children from prior marriages or relationships (you may have maintenance commitments) 
On 1st February 2009, the amount of money going automatically to a spouse or civil partner increased to £250k (where there are children) and £450k (no children). You may think that you don't need a will because your loved ones will be financially provided for, but if you haven't dealt with issues relating to former marriages and unmarried partners you will be leaving them with heartache and a large bill to pay to unravel the mess.
