Dealing with bereavement

Losing someone is hard enough without then having to resolve financial matters through difficult processes. It can often feel overwhelming. We appreciate that sorting out these issues may be the last thing on your mind. So if you’d like to talk to someone who can help you through the steps you need to take, have a look at the contact page for information on how best to get in touch.

We’ve also created a Bereavement Guide to tell you what information we’ll need, plus a few other things you might want to consider. To help you remember everything you need to do, the guide also contains a bereavement checklist.

The downloadable guide is available here.
