When executors are rallied to fulfill their responsibilities, they have a lot of pressure put on them. Their siblings and family members may be demanding information on one hand, the federal government has a looming deadline on the other hand. Within 90 days, the approximate total estate value must be disclosed. Everything must be located and itemized. This can be trying, and horror stories abound regarding this. Where are the passwords, who are the key advisors, where are the insurance policies, investments, bank accounts, credit cards, tax filings…. Yikes!
The executor cannot ask you where anything is, you are no longer here. Your executor may not know what to look for, where to look for it, or to whom to distribute personal items. They may feel pressure from various beneficiaries. One may be demanding reports, some may be demanding an accounting of activity, another may be demanding a time sheet or micro-managing their activity. You can leave your beneficiary with a resonating and everlasting gift, the gift of organization and clear communication of that organization. People like this leave a ripple of love and gratitude as they give their executor and loved ones the path to settling the estate in peace, in honor, with organized instructions and information.
Think how this makes the executor and beneficiaries feel as they mourn and remember their loved one who has passed on. Being organized makes a difference, at home.
