Checklist for What to Do After Someone Dies

What to Do When a Loved One Dies
Practical steps you need to take in the early days

When people die, they leave behind a life that must be closed out. The funeral must be planned, bank accounts closed, pets rehomed, final bills paid.

When someone you love dies, the job of handling those personal and legal details may fall to you. It’s a stressful, bureaucratic task that can take a year or more to complete, all while you are grieving the loss.

The amount of paperwork can take survivors by surprise. “It's a big responsibility,” emphasizes Bill Harbison, a trusts and estates lawyer in Nashville, Tennessee. “There are a lot of details to take care of.”

You can’t do it alone. Settling a deceased family member’s affairs is not a one-person task. You’ll need the help of others, ranging from professionals like lawyers or CPAs, who can advise you on financial matters, to a network of friends and relatives, to whom you can delegate tasks or on whom you can lean for emotional support. You may take the lead in planning the funeral and then hand off the financial details to the executor. Or you may be the executor, which means you’ll oversee settling the estate and spend months, maybe even years, dealing with paperwork.

Texas Inheritance Laws

Texas does not impose a state inheritance or estate tax. Most of its laws surrounding inheritance are straightforward. However, if you die without a will, the distribution of your assets will be left up to the state’s intestate succession process. Sorting an estate or inheritance can be complicated, but a financial advisor could help you create an estate plan for your family’s needs and goals.
