Where do I store my Will?
Your Will is an important document that should be kept safe but be easy to find after you’ve passed away.
The Public Trustee’s WA Will Bank is a free community service that keeps Wills in safe custody for all Western Australians.
The WA Will Bank stores Wills in its purpose-built, fire-proof vault - safe from loss, theft or damage. Original Wills are also scanned and electronically stored for added security.
There is no charge for people who deposit their own Wills in the WA Will Bank.
After death, only the executor (or other authorised person) can access the Will – a copy of the death certificate and approved identification is required.
If you’d like to store your Will in the WA Will Bank, please complete a lodgement form (available on the Public Trustee website or phone 1300 746 116).
Please do not bind your Will using plastic binders or covers as these tend to degrade the pages over time, simply staple your Will several times along the left hand spine.
