When a family member passes away, there are several phone calls to make.  In each case, follow-up calls, meetings, and paperwork will probably be required.

Also, the order of the calls may be different depending on the circumstances; however, the following list is a good general guide:

1.  Funeral home
2.  Family & friends
3.  Veteran’s office
4.  The deceased’s employer
5.  Attorney
6.  Social security office
7.  Insurance company
8.  Local newspaper
9.  Credit card companies & utilities
10. Banks
