Widows

Dealing with the loss of a spouse can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life.

Grief and mourning affect each of us uniquely, but all widows share a painful dilemma: On the one hand, the world seems to demand rapid response to a barrage of critical questions – financial and otherwise. On the other hand, it’s usually a terrible time to be making big decisions, especially if they really can wait.

You probably have lots of tough questions after losing your spouse.  You might be wondering:

  • How will I take care of my family without my partner?
  • How do I pay my bills?
  • Do I need to get a job?
  • What do I do with my spouse’s retirement plans?
  • Is it smart to combine IRA accounts?
  • Am I entitled to part of my spouse’s pension
