You will find it to be the most comprehensive estate and funeral planning organizer available. Once completed, it becomes an indispensable tool for your family to use as it deals with the big decisions and small details of your estate. Most of the important information about your personal affairs is kept in your head. This easy-to-fill-out workbook takes you through a simple step by step process of writing down the wide range of your personal, financial and final arrangement details. No one knows the future, so it is never too soon to record your personal affairs and final wishes.
You need this book no matter what your age or stage in life such as:
*Widow or widower
*Parents with young children
*Adult with an aging parent
*Young adult children
*Executor of an estate
What if you fall ill and are temporarily unable to make decisions? How will your family manage your day to day business until you are back on your feet? Or, should you pass away, how will your family know about all of your personal affairs? While it is difficult to face your mortality, pre-planning is a gift of love.
This workbook includes:
*Personal Affairs Checklist
Important names, phone numbers, addresses, document locations, medical information, family history, computer related IDs, passwords and more
*Financial Records Organizer
Millions of dollars in life insurance policies, bank accounts and safe deposit boxes go unclaimed because heirs are unaware that those assets exist. Your family can rely on this workbook to avoid leaving assets unclaimed. Easy access to this information will also reduce the executor and lawyer fees when settling your estate.
*Funeral Planning Guide
Confronting death is not easy. Under the stress of making difficult choices, your family may disagree or feel guilty about making wrong last minute decisions. Before It's Too Late creates a complete funeral plan by recording all of your final wishes. Your family will have peace of mind knowing that they are making the right decisions, strengthening their ability to cope with your death. There are lots of reasons why you may have put off discussing the details of your funeral with the people closest to you. For example:
*As a son or daughter of aging parents, you may feel awkward asking about their funeral plans.
*You want to talk to your family but there never seems like a good time.
*You know what you want but don't feel comfortable discussing your funeral plans.
*You want to share your funeral plans, but your family doesn't want to talk about your death.
*As a single parent, you think your children are too young to deal with the thought of your death.
There aren't many things that you can do for your family that will help so much and cost so little. Single, married, divorced, or widowed, no matter what your age or situation, don't leave your loved ones unprepared.
