UNISON’s Free Wills Service

UNISON offers a free standard wills service for members and their partners (for a mirror will). We also offer reduced rates for members’ complex wills and wills for other family members.

The simplest way to obtain your will is to use our bespoke on line wills service.

Access UNISON’s free will service

UNISON’s online wills service is very straightforward to use, just complete the online questionnaire. The questionnaire with its online guidance will carefully take you through the process. Please also find attached our standards of service quality for this online wills service.

In addition, UNISON has negotiated a low-cost wills service for members’ families and a low-cost conveyancing service for members and their families.

Personal injury

If you have been injured at work or a loved one has been injured outside of work you can claim with confidence using the UNISON legal service. Your case will be handled by an expert lawyer and – thanks to your UNISON membership – you won’t pay a penny in legal fees and will keep 100% of any compensation.

Even if the accident seems small or insignificant or if you’re not sure who was at fault – give UNISONdirect a call for advice.

Clinical negligence

We offer initial legal help for members and their families who have suffered clinical negligence. This involves a free initial assessment of the likely prospects of success from our lawyers.

Should the advice be to go ahead with a claim, UNISON is not able to fund the future costs of these cases, but our lawyers can advise on the best way to fund the claim.

 Call UNISONdirect if you have been affected by clinical negligence or for information on cliaming for personal injury:
