Making a will makes you live longer. That's the conclusion reached by legacy specialists Live and Let Live, who compared the mortality figures of those who had made a will with those who hadn't. The average age of death for people who hadn't made a will was 72 years, 6 months. However, bequeath your personal possessions on paper and life expectancy shoots up to 80 years, 5 months. Want to live even longer? Leave some cash to charity: generous donors lasted until the ripe old age of 83 years.
