I was surprised at the amount of time and effort needed to finalize my father’s affairs. I ended up taking several days off work when I really wanted to sit in a quiet corner and remember his life. Having someone to help me with this would have been great.

Enhance Your Insurance Policies

While emotional counseling and funeral concierge services are common complements to life insurance programs, they still leave beneficiaries on their own to deal with the confusion and hassle of trying to close out a loved one’s affairs. The personal, hands-on service of our Beneficiary Assistance Coordinators is unique and fills the gap that these services don’t provide.
