DOCUMENTATION TO HAVE IN PLACE BEFORE DEATH

Published: June 28, 2019

When a person gets a little older, it is very necessary to ensure that they have all the paperwork in place. Every person has different types of documentation which need to be maintained methodically. For example, all of your legal, medical, financial as well as contact and property-related information should be in order at all times.

Make sure that all of it is updated and that some family member is aware of where you have kept this information. This is a crucial aspect as the person would need all of this information in the event of your demise. Not everyone is comfortable with the thought of death, and it is also why many do not make sure the documentation is in place.
Important Documents

However, if you face an untimely death due to an accident or even a disease, it is necessary to make sure that these things are easily accessible to your family members. Some of the documentation that you need to have in place include:
Your Will

Living Will

Power of attorney

Utility registrations

Information about investments and different assets

Financial cards

Bank account details

Information related to real estate investments

Mortgage and loan-related information

Vehicle insurance, medical insurance, and life insurance

Memberships and subscriptions

Make it a point to keep all the original documents and also have multiple copies in different files. This will make it easy for your family members to access information and use it after your death as required. As mentioned, it is necessary that you keep one of your family members or even a close friend or lawyer informed about where you have kept this paperwork.
