Are You Prepared for the Worst?
It’s not anything we want to think about, but what if the worst were to happen? The sudden loss of a loved one—or your own death. If the unthinkable occurred, would you be prepared?
For instance, have you thought about:
- What will happen to your children—with a legal document outlining guardianship?
- Whether someone close to you knows exactly where to find all your important documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and social security paperwork?
- Compiling a list of all your important contacts in one place?
