Think about tomorrow, today

Planning for later life

Let your loved ones know your wishes

None of us like to think about our loved ones having to manage without us. But it’s important that we do. If you became seriously ill, would your family know what to do? Would they know who you bank with, whether you have life insurance, or where to find your will?

Plan Ahead is a free, online tool that can help you record, store and share important documents like a will or policies such as pensions or life insurance.

Plan Ahead is designed for NatWest customers living in England and Wales, aged 18 and over, who are registered for Online Banking and have a valid UK mobile number.
