Carrot.ng, one of Nigeria’s leading online will writing company has advised workers on creating an estate plan.
They advised workers to ensure that they write their will or trust to cater for their beneficiaries while still alive.
The company gave the advice in a recent statement to commemorate the 2019 Labour Day and celebrate workers for their dedicated service to the nation.
According to the company, based on its research and experience, it would not be beneficial for workers to die or become incapacitated without a succession plan for all they have worked for and leave their family members in problems over inheritance.
The company said it had designed products that suit the Nigerian workers.
“The Online Will Writing and Trust Platform offers the ease and privacy Nigerians crave when planning their estates.
“Among the assets that can be included in a Will are Bank account/Bank Verification Number (BVN), Shares/Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS No), Pension Fund Accounts (PFA), lands, etc.
“In fact, you can also give a certain percentage of your assets to your churches, mosques and for charities.
“Not creating your Wills portends very serious consequences, especially the length of time it takes to process letters of administration and the possibility of family members forcefully taking over assets and discomforting the bereaved wives and children,” the statement added.
The company also canvassed better working conditions and commended the federal government over the recent increase in minimum wage to N30,000.00.
“Life is so full of uncertainties, hence there is a need to consider having an estate plan to mitigate expected and unexpected challenges associated with securing the financial future and comfort of your loved ones.
“Putting in place a valid Will offers adequate protection of your legacies, especially for those you truly love should the need arise. An estate plan helps you realise the famous saying of “what we do in life echoes in eternity,” the company said.
The statement added: “Carrot.ng helps you to create, update and schedule execution of your Wills and or other testamentary instruments such as Deed of Gifts, Living Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorney, etc., on a convenient, affordable and secure platform in real time, anywhere.
