Nine options for lifetime benefits for a surviving spouse or vulnerable child

A will-maker has traditionally had an obligation to a surviving married partner to ensure that the partner has secure accommodation and a sufficient income. This usually meant that the surviving partner was entitled to the matrimonial home.  Blended families and de facto relationships, however, pose a challenge to this idea, as do the range of aged care options available.  These changes have led to life interests that are flexible in the choice of assets that may be held for a surviving partner’s lifetime benefit.
