Once completed, it becomes an indispensable tool for your family to use as it deals with the big decisions and small details of your estate.

What if you fall ill and are temporarily unable to make decisions? How will your family manage your day to day business until you are back on your feet?

This workbook includes:
*Personal Affairs Checklist
Important names, phone numbers, addresses, document locations, medical information, family history, computer related IDs, passwords and more
*Financial Records Organizer
Millions of dollars in life insurance policies, bank accounts and safe deposit boxes go unclaimed because heirs are unaware that those assets exist. Your family can rely on this workbook to avoid leaving assets unclaimed. Easy access to this information will also reduce the executor and lawyer fees when settling your estate.
*Funeral Planning Guide
Confronting death is not easy. Under the stress of making difficult choices, your family may disagree or feel guilty about making wrong last minute decisions. Before It's Too Late creates a complete funeral plan by recording all of your final wishes. Your family will have peace of mind knowing that they are making the right decisions, strengthening their ability to cope with your death. There are lots of reasons why you may have put off discussing the details of your funeral with the people closest to you. For example:
*As a son or daughter of aging parents, you may feel awkward asking about their funeral plans.
*You want to talk to your family but there never seems like a good time.
*You know what you want but don't feel comfortable discussing your funeral plans.
*You want to share your funeral plans, but your family doesn't want to talk about your death.
*As a single parent, you think your children are too young to deal with the thought of your death.

There aren't many things that you can do for your family that will help so much and cost so little. Single, married, divorced, or widowed, no matter what your age or situation, don't leave your loved ones unprepared.

From the Publisher:

Chances are, you have prepared your will and have put it in a safe place. You have probably designated a family member or friend to be the executor of your estate at the time of your death. You may even have shared your funeral plans and wishes with those close to you. If so, you may be feeling well organized in the event of your death, but guess again. Most of the important information about your personal affairs is kept in your head. Not just the big details surrounding your financial estate, but the small details that you don't realize are important. After you're gone, who could quickly find the answers to questions concerning: location of the will, letter of instruction, other important documents and keys; financial assets such as investments, banking, insurance policies, real estate records; phone numbers of the attorney, insurance agent, accountant, clergyman etc.; employment history and retirement/pension benefits; vital information needed for the death certificate and obituary. How will your heirs know that they have taken care of all your personal affairs according to your wishes if you haven't written everything down? If you are unsure of how to get started, a new workbook called Before It's Too Late: Don't Leave Your Loved Ones Unprepared will help you create a complete record-keeping journal. This easy-to-fill-out book takes you through a simple step-by-step process of recording a wide range of personal information. When it is completed, you will have an estate and funeral-planning guide that will give your family the ability to fulfill your written instructions. Millions of dollars in life insurance policies, bank accounts and safe deposit boxes go unclaimed because heirs are unaware that those assets exist. One section in Before It's Too Late includes a complete record of your legal and financial affairs. Your executor can rely on this record to avoid leaving assets unclaimed. In addition, this information will reduce the lawyer's time and fees when settling your estate. Many people assume that when they die, their family will know what specific funeral plans to make. But under the stress of making difficult choices in an emotional situation, family members can disagree or feel guilty about making wrong last-minute decisions. Before It's Too Late creates a complete funeral plan for others to follow by recording your final wishes. Your family will have peace of mind knowing that they are making the right decisions, strengthening their ability to cope with your death. There are lots of reasons why you may have put off discussing the details of your death with people closest to you. Maybe you mean to talk to your relatives who live out-of-town but never remember to do it. Maybe, as a single parent, you think your children are too young to deal with the thought of your death. As the son or daughter of aging parents, you may feel awkward about asking them about their financial assets or funeral plans. The act of confronting death on paper is not easy but it is simple. Before It's Too Late provides a way to share your important information and wishes on paper with those who will be responsible for the big decisions and small details after you are gone. There aren't many other things that you can do for your family that will help so much and cost you so little. Single, married, divorced, or widowed, no matter what your age or situation, don't leave your loved ones unprepared.
