When a loved one dies, there is a lot to do and a lot of it is time sensitive.

First, there are many practical items to consider. These may include:

  • Seeking care for any pet;
  • Determine if there are funeral instructions, arrangements, or prepayments;
  • Tell family and friends;
  • Preparing obituaries;
  • Securing the house, and many other practical items.

Once the initial matters are tackled, it is important to find out if there is a plantation plan in place.

Trustees must be notified so they can take action, according to the terms of the estate plan.

Even if there is no inheritance plan, surviving loved ones should still take action to:

  • Define a professional adviser, such as a financial adviser, attorney, etc.;
  • Obtain a copy of the death certificate; And
  • find life insurance policies, bank statements, and other legal documents.
