In The Event Of My Death Printables For Your Loved Ones To Be Prepared Just In Case Something Happens.
One thing we can all guarantee is death.
We know we will all die one day, but it is one of those things we don’t like to think about.
In trying not to think about it, we don’t even talk about it with our loved ones.
Would they even know what to do?
In the last two weeks, I have lost two family members.
Both were unexpected deaths, so therefore they were not planned for.
Their deaths left their immediate family with not only grief but confusion about what to do.
That really got me thinking that in the case of my death, would my affairs be organized for my family?
Just In Case Something Happens
I decided to get more organized just in case something happens.
I made some “getting my affairs together” worksheets to print and fill out.
Even if you have a will, (which is something that I need to take care of) your family needs to have organized information in the event of your death.
You don’t want them hunting around not knowing how to take care of things.
That is exactly why I knew I needed to get my life organized in case something happened to me.
When it comes to my family’s medical and financial information, I take care of all of that.
I pay the bills. I stay on top of our children’s doctor’s appointments and any medications our family may need.
In the event of my death, my husband would be lost in figuring out how to tie up loose ends while also dealing with grief.
I don’t want my family to go through that.
So I decided to make an “In The Event Of My Death” Printable Organizer.
I have printed it off and filled it out, it is now with the rest of my important documents in a fire-proof safe.
In The Event Of My Death Printables
If someone had to suddenly pick up where you left off, this printable organizer should help with getting your affairs in order.
This organizer will help you organize all of your online accounts, important documents, medical records, and more.
How Do You Organize Information In Case Of Death?
Organize Online Accounts
With everything being at our fingertips, many of us have opted out of paper statements and have gone fully digital.
We use many online accounts, from banking to paying our bills.
So we must organize online accounts, so our loved ones won’t be faced with trying to figure it all out.
In the event of your death, your loved ones should know how to access all of your accounts, so they can either take over the payments or close them out.
Also, make sure to list any accounts that have reoccurring payments, so they can be taken care of as soon as possible.
I personally have a lot of online accounts.
I do not save my passwords to my computers, tablets, or even my phone because I worry about hackers.
However, I do have them all written down.
In this organizer, there is a password list for you to write down all the passwords that you have.
This just makes it easier for loved ones to have access to anything online that they may need to log in to.
Passwords that may be needed after death:
- social media
- any other online account
Organize Important Documents
Maybe you keep all of your important documents in one place like in a file cabinet or fire-proof document safe, but just in case you don’t, your loved ones will need to know where to find them.
Important Documents That Need To Be Organized In The Event Of Your Death:
- life insurance policies
- birth certificates
- social security cards
- marriage certificates
- vaccination records
- tax returns
These are all important documents that your loved ones will need access to if something happens to you.
Organize Medical Records
If something happened to me, I know my husband would be lost when it came to our children’s medical and vaccination records.
It is because as a Mom, I just take care of all of that.
I am the one who keeps a contact list of the pediatrician, the dentist, the optometrist, teachers, coaches, and other important people involved in my children’s lives.
So in the case of my death, there is now a printable that has all this important information listed. I printed out one for each child.
Also, I printed out one for our dog, so all of her medical information is together as well.
Final Wishes Covered
Make sure you have your final wishes covered.
The last thing you want your family to go through in the event of your death is not knowing what your final wishes are.
It will help them during the grieving process to know they are doing exactly what you wanted.
Get Your Affairs In Order In The Event Of Death
I know that death is something we don’t like to talk about, but we all know that one day it will happen.
In the event of my death, I want my family to be able to take care of things and I want to remove any burden I can from their grief.
