I have lost my spouse, what are my next steps in moving forward financially? What do you do when you lose your husband? Where do you start? Even if you've always handled your family's finances, the number of financial and legal matters that have to be settled in the weeks and months following your loved one's death can be overwhelming. Facing your loss can ultimately help you as you work to adapt to the new conditions of your life, so that in time you can create something new. Make a list of the names and phone numbers of the people and organizations you're dealing with and post it in a central location. Make sure you reach out to a professional for assistance in managing and reviewing important documents. A financial advisor can be of great help when it comes to finding what money is available to you or how to deal with financial burdens. As you navigate your new financial terrain, you might find it helpful to work with a financial professional who can help you plan on what you will accomplish with your new lifestyle. Do not be afraid to say no, always do what works and feels best for you.
