This may be viewed by some as a very sensitive subject. One may ask: Why should I even think about dying or what happens to my family when I go?
Consider these points:
- The absence of a will or any other legal document detailing the disbursement of funds makes it difficult, costly and time consuming for survivors to have access to such funds.
- Family members each may have their own thoughts on what you would have done.
- A general rise in cost of living means yesterday’s funeral costs will not be the same tomorrow.
- Insurance companies provisions and also special policies for setting aside funds in the event of death.
