Your Spouse Dies – What Do You Do Now?- Season 5: Episode 3

All marriages end in one of two ways: divorce or death. If you live long enough with someone, eventually one of you will mourn the other. And whether a spouse’s passing comes as a surprise or not, there will always be a list of tasks that the survivor must deal with at some point. But what are those tasks, and when do you have to perform them?

Good questions. And while everyone’s situation is unique, there are a few things that most everyone who is in that situation should be sure to get done. On this week’s episode of Managing Your Financial Future, podcast host Johnny Dean speaks with “Professor” Rick Plum, CFP® about what to do when your spouse passes away — what you might consider taking care of first, and what can maybe wait until later.  Tune in to find out more!
