Ambulance Employees Australia - Victoria (AEAV)
Free Will Service
AEAV members can access a free will service from our legal partner Maurice Blackburn.
A Will is one of the most important legal documents you will sign in your lifetime. It determines who will be in control of your estate after your death, and how your estate is to be distributed. Despite this, a staggering 50% of Australians do not have a valid Will.
Maurice Blackburn has made the process of getting a Will faster and easier online so all AEAV members and their partners can create a FREE standard Will.

How can I access this offer?
