    Hi,

    So the other day, my father told me, ever since I was born £1k every year to my bank account.

    I'm 27 now and he saved something like £25k and he told me last week, when I pass away, only then you can have it.

    I don't want him to pass away, I don't understand why he can't give it me now, especially since I've just graduated and seeking a graduate job. And I had a speaking disorder for 22 years.

    He is working and he can use what he earns for himself.

    All in all, I don't see the point of giving the saved sum of money decades from now, I'm not going to spend the money, it's just that people feel a bit secure having a safety net, they feel more secure.

    What are your thoughts?

    BTW, I've lived a traumatic life, couldn't talk properly for two decades, I lost my mom since the age of 11, bullied, never ever had a hug, love ever,so this is the other reason why he should give it now.

    Life is short, why give it in the form of a will? Why give it after he's past away?

    Welcome to adult life mate, where people don't give a toss about you and competition for jobs is intense and once you're in a job, you're only one bad moment away from the sack. I wish there were more compassion in the world too, but sadly that's how it goes.

    If you have a specific reason you want the money (aka putting towards a house, for education, etc etc) then maybe he'll change his mind. But if you want the money just to have the money, I can understand why he'd keep it until then. There's no point pissing it away just because you have it. I think it would be nice to know that I have that much money coming to me one day

    Thank you for the replies.

    Even if he gives it, I'm not going to use it, I don't like wasting money. It's just that I would like to know I have this much already my account and this makes me feel secure, money makes everyone secure.

    I'm relatively confident I'll get a job in the next 2-3 months.

    this is irrelevant ^^^^ why does having a tough life mean you're entitled to the money?

    I think you're being massively ungrateful, your dad has saved a huge amount of money to give to you and you're just sat there moaning that you can't have it exactly when you want it
