Your world got turned upside down, perhaps without warning. Where there used to be a spouse to confer with, you’re now solely at the helm. You own, even if reluctantly, all decisions now. And this can be terrifying if you weren’t the primary decision-maker before your loss. Research suggests that only 14% of widows and widowers were making financial decisions by themselves before their spouse died. So, for most – 86% – making such decisions now can be daunting. Knowing where to turn and who to trust is even more challenging. Most likely, you’ve never experienced the loss of a spouse before. On top of the overwhelming sense of loss and grief, all of this is new to you.
