Will Deck

The missing link in employee benefit programmes

Estate planning

Many employers are spending thousands of dollars on life insurance and KiwiSaver without realising the importance of coupling this with a Will.

Most people don’t realise when they pass away that these assets are not immediately available to their loved ones. Additionally, if there isn’t a Will in place the time and cost to access these funds if the worst were to happen increases by an estimated 50%. To give that perspective, this could mean an estate administration fee upwards of $15,000 and over 18 months before any funds can go to beneficiaries.

The Footprint Will Deck is our original estate planning platform designed to teach all the “need to know” stuff regarding Wills and estate administration via digital learning labs. It also gives the ability to create, keep up to date and store a legally valid online Will.

The knowledge gained through Learning Labs provides your employees with a solid understanding regarding estate planning before they go on to write their Will. After filling in the easy question/answer template and submitting their Will to us, a professional Will drafter then reviews it and turns it into a legal document.

Once the Will is signed and witnessed it can then be securely uploaded into their personal digital vault. The original hard copy can be sent to us, so we can keep it in a flood and earthquake proof location. Employees can also select who they would like to notify regarding the Wills existence and location. Anyone that already has a Will can use the platform the same way by utilising the Learning Labs, storage and notifications, and they can also create a new Will at any point if they would like to update their circumstances.

Similar to other benefit programmes, your employees can choose to upgrade their account to include our exclusive estate administration package valued at $10,000.

The Will Deck is a fantastic benefit that can clip on to any existing employee benefits package and also shows you’re doing right by your employees and their families.
