How to leave a legacy to Age UK

You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. You can leave a share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after all bills have been paid and all other legacies have been distributed.

If you would like to add a gift to Age UK to an existing will, you can use a codicil. Adding a codicil to your will means there is no need to change the terms of your current will. It simply adds a new instruction.

As a rule if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil, and if the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.

If you wish to make several changes, big or small, it is advisable to make a new will. If you have any questions around writing a codicil or updating your will, you should seek advice from a solicitor or professional adviser.
