If you have recently lost a loved one, the last thing you want to be thinking about is your financial affairs. But sadly, someone passing away is inevitably linked with the financial fallout that is left behind for those who are responsible for dealing with their affairs.
You will need to think about everything from dealing with and paying for a funeral, to sorting out their will - if they have one - and dealing with the probate that goes alongside the finalising of their finances.
MyMoneyDiva will try to help you at this difficult time, with information on how to deal with funeral planning, inheritance tax and probate.
For many women, the first time they start to deal with their financial affairs for themselves is when their husband or partner dies, and that can be a frightening prospect. Don't worry, we will be here to help you every step of the way.
