This is from an email from the ABA - it can be helpful and I pass it along :
Practical resource for dealing with family matters upon death.
When someone you love dies, dealing with the personal and financial affairs - on top of the emotional trauma - can be overwhelming. With this first-of-its-kind manual from the ABA and AARP, you can take comfort in knowing that you can handle with ease the matters that arise upon your loved one's death.
The personal record-keeping workbook, packaged with a CD-ROM, walks you through the process step-by-step. The ABA/AARP Checklist for Family Survivors covers these topics and more:
  • Applying for survivors' benefits
  • Paying outstanding bills and handling insurance
  • Sorting through the stuff - physical and digital
  • Writing the obituary and dealing with the funeral home
  • Navigating the grief process and taking care of yourself
While there are a number of books on matters of grief and financial planning, this is the first - from AARP and the American Bar Association's Senior Lawyers Division - comprehensive guide that answers questions for family survivors in one, straightforward book.
