Peace of Mind for When We Leave This Earth

Benjamin Franklin penned the famous quote: “…In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” Many of us would rather not contemplate our inevitable physical passing, however it is smart to get our affairs in order in case of serious illness or worst yet, death! Most of us do not want to leave our dependents or heirs in a quandary regarding our financial affairs and personal matters, which is why we need to get ourselves organized for unexpected events like this. There are many books and planners on the market that help prepare people for later life events. One book I recommend is “I’m Dead, Now What?: Important Information About My Belongings, Business Affairs, and Wishes (Peter Pauper Press) .

This planner offers you a way to gather together vital personal and financial information for your family member. It may even be a perfect gift for elderly family members!! This planner has helpful sections including:

  • Personal Information
  • Medical/health information
  • Key Contacts
  • Financial Information
  • Business Information
  • Important Documents (location in home/bank)
  • Insurance Information
  • Assets
  • Final Wishes
