Share and Forget – what happens to your heirs if you die tomorrow.
Today we live in a fast, online world where families are global and wealth is greater, which makes inheritance planning even more important.
The need for Share and Forget grew from watching the Heir Hunters programme and seeing how difficult and expensive it can be to pass on the legacies you intended for your children.
Don't let your loved ones suffer lost inheritances - Banks and Building societies have so much money languishing in dormant accounts, hidden forever from the rightful owners because they don’t know where to look.
Save your heirs all those expensive legal fees and prevent delays. Just £5.00 per annum, or a one off, lifetime registration fee of £25.00, can save thousands of pounds in unnecessary costs.
Your heirs know where to look and what to look for.
Share and Forget – have peace of mind, plan today for tomorrows future generations
