Footprints Online Wills

The University of Canterbury recognises the importance of Wills. Footprint Wills offer a discounted online Will Service to all UC staff members, alumni, and valued supporters. As an alumni/staff member of the University of Canterbury, you get a 15% discount on your online Will.

Why get a Will?

If you pass away without a Will, New Zealand legislation dictates who gets how much of your estate. This could mean your assets might not end up with the people you intended.

With a Will:

  • You get to decide who gets what of your estate
  • Distributing your assets will be much quicker and cost less
  • You can assign a guardian for your children and pets
  • You can also state your funeral wishes

Footprint is a digital Kiwi company providing legally valid online Wills and estate administration solutions. They make writing a Will easy and affordable, and on average it only takes 16 minutes to complete. Their professional Will drafters check the details of your Will before sending it back to you in a matter of days.

If you already have a Will, Footprint offers a Bring Your Own (BYO) Will option. This provides you with a digital vault giving you 24/7 access to your Will and other important documents from anywhere in the world, as well as physical storage of your Will in a flood and earthquake-proof location. Each year you have the opportunity to update your Will to reflect your most recent life changes.
