What is a bequest?
A bequest is a gift that is included in your Will.
A bequest can be made at the time you are making your Will or it can be added by codicil to your Will. Making a bequest is a simple and inexpensive procedure.
Should you make a bequest to Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) it is important that you advise family members of your wishes. We also recommend that you consult a solicitor to ensure your wishes are clearly articulated.
For your information, the correct wording to include RTSSV in your will is printed below:
“I give and bequeath to Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV), ABN no: 52 074 919 950 of Suite 2/109 Whitehorse Road, Blackburn, Victoria 3130, for its general purpose, (or please specify how you would like your bequest administered), and I declare that the receipt of its public officer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees.”
