Nobody wants to think let alone talk about the day their parents will pass on. It feels somehow risky to even touch on the subject. But, the truth is that, we all most go at some point. Your parents know that there will be aftermath when they pass on, and that it will be you and your siblings (if you have any) that will handle that. They want that transition to be as easy as possible for you knowing that, naturally, it won’t be easy at all. But, if you have certain conversations and make specific arrangements today, while you’re still in a good emotional state, then when that tough day comes, you can mostly just grieve. You can just deal with your feelings, and not have to face complex logistical questions while you’re devastated. Now is the time you can make clear-headed decisions. Here are conversations to have with your parents before they pass on.

I need legal and financial contacts

Your parents have attorneys, lawyers, and account managers with whom you’ll need to speak when they pass. Ask them to write down all of those, including names, phone numbers, and addresses.
