032 – Tammy Symons- What To Do When a Family Member Dies

In this episode, KT and Tammy Symons discuss:

  • KT’s experience with a death of a family member
  • If you’re the griever, what you should be thinking about
  • Planning a funeral
  • Inquiring about life insurance

Key Takeaways:

  • When a family member passes, make sure you know whose name is on current loans, any debt, insurance, etc.
  • The initial task after someone passes away is to seek financial advice from a professional
  • Take loved ones with you when you go to the funeral home to make big decisions
  • Take a good inventory of everything that the deceased had — reach out to his/her financial planner — and use that information to make informed financial decisions

“When you’re grieving, you’re not yourself… and you can’t really think things through.”KT Thomas
