Paperwork everyone should have in order…just in case.

This is a deep one because it involves money and death – two scary topics for most.

1. MUST get life insurance. If you die, can your children your spouse, your elderly parent(s) survive without you? Is your life insurance enough? It may sound like a lot when you are alive, but once you are gone – is it truly enough?

2. Put together a will. This will save your family time, money and the emotional pain of having to sort things out after you are gone. Even with no assets a will is critical because it’s the best way to transfer guardianship of your children.

3. Discuss your dying wishes. Do you want to be cremated and if so, what should be done with your ashes? Where do you want to be buried? This topic discussed in health is no biggie, once a loved one is on his/her death bed – it is the hardest thing in the world to do. Sometimes these conversations never happen – and that makes knowing what to do even more trivial.

I know it’s not easy to swallow these 3 things- but I speak from experience in knowing how critical these things are to those left behind.

Wishing you all a blessed Monday!
