Many questions and challenges arise following the death of a spouse or loved one. Uncertainty about the procedures of insurance companies, benefits agencies and estates—when compounded with the emotions of grief—can add confusion to an already difficult time.

In order to help, we have put together a pamphlet which outlines some of the things you should know as you begin to address the many practical issues which follow the death of a friend or loved one.

The booklet follows a simple plan. It contains a short message about grieving, followed by sections which explain the basics of survivor benefits and insurance, personal considerations, settling an estate, and other practical issues.

If you would like to have a copy for yourself, please give us a call at (800) 259-1893 or send your name and address to and we will mail you a copy right away. We will send it with no further obligation. For those who already have the pamphlet and want to download the worksheet mentioned there, please click the following link.
