I Lost My Spouse and Need Help With My Finances

The loss of a spouse is a profound life event that brings about a period of significant emotional and financial upheaval. At Mottet Wealth, we understand the intricate interplay between the grieving process and the need for financial stability. We are here to provide you with the compassionate guidance and support necessary to navigate this challenging time.

Emotional Support and Financial Guidance

Grieving is a deeply personal experience that can profoundly affect every aspect of life. As your financial advisor, we believe in a holistic approach to support. Recognizing the importance of emotional well-being as the cornerstone of financial stability, we encourage you to take the necessary time to grieve, seek support, and understand that it’s perfectly acceptable to ask for help.

Organizing Your Financial Life

When you feel ready, Mottet Wealth is here to assist in organizing the financial aspects of your life. This includes gathering all necessary documents, such as wills, insurance policies, bank statements, investment accounts, property deeds, and tax returns. These documents are essential for understanding your current financial situation and making informed decisions moving forward.

Communicating with Financial Institutions

We can help identify all the financial institutions and government agencies you need to contact regarding your spouse’s passing. This process involves updating accounts and ensuring that you receive any benefits to which you are entitled. We handle these communications with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism, alleviating some of the burdens you may be facing.

Understanding Your Financial Picture

Together, we’ll conduct a comprehensive review of your finances, examining your monthly expenses and income. This crucial step helps us create a plan that addresses your immediate needs and establishes a foundation for your future financial health.

Professional Financial Guidance

Mottet Wealth offers more than financial advice; we offer a partnership. Our expertise provides personalized guidance tailored to your unique situation. Whether you need assistance with estate planning, investment management, or navigating pension and social security benefits, we are here to help.

Insurance and Benefits

Navigating life insurance benefits can be complex. We’ll work with you to review any policies your spouse may have had, helping you understand the terms and file any necessary claims. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the full benefits you’re entitled to, without any additional stress.

Legal and Estate Planning

Aligning you with an estate planning attorney to help update your legal documents, including your will, power of attorney, and healthcare proxy, is a crucial step in securing your future. We’ll guide you through these updates, ensuring that your wishes are clearly articulated and your estate is protected.

Budgeting for the Future

Creating a budget is a fundamental component of financial planning, particularly during times of change. We’ll help you develop a budget that reflects your current financial situation and supports your long-term goals. This budget will act as a roadmap, enabling you to manage your expenses and plan for a secure financial future.
