Why have a will when you have beneficiaries?

You give up some control when you just have beneficiaries and no will

by Ed Olkovich for MoneySense magazine

Q: I am married. I have RRIF and LIRA and my spouse has RRSPs. We have joint cashable accounts too. We have appointed each other as beneficiaries for every account. I am told this arrangement takes longer to settle on death if there is no will. Why do I still need a will?
