Aftercare – What to do after a death.

Every family and every life has a checklist. You and yours will be unique, but we have put together this checklist to get to the first steps of handling an estate. After a death, it can feel like there are so many things to do that you can’t find a starting place. Beginning the probate process, notifying Social Security, closing bank accounts, and securing social media can all feel like urgent matters. Take a deep breath, take a look at this checklist, and tackle one thing at a time.

This post death checklist is anything but comprehensive, it’s meant as a resource to get you started on the path. Sometimes, it’s just getting started that is the hardest.
