Below are the three most effective wording options for including a bequest in a Will – either your own or that of a family or friend or, if you are a solicitor, a client.

Each of these ensures that the real dollar value of your bequest is not eroded by inflation.

1. Wording for a residuary bequest:
I give and bequeath the rest and residue of my estate both real and personal to Reclink Australia – (ACN 131 719 027) 115B Ferrars Street, South Melbourne VIC 3205, for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

2. Wording to leave a percentage of the residue of an estate:
I give and bequeath __________ per cent of the residue of my estate to Reclink Australia – (ACN 131 719 027) 115B Ferrars Street, South Melbourne VIC 3205, for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

3. Wording for leaving a percentage of the total estate:
I give and bequeath __________ per cent of my estate to Reclink Australia – (ACN 131 719 027) 115B Ferrars Street, South Melbourne VIC 3205, for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.
