What to do when someone dies

14 September 2016
When someone dies, working out what needs to be done can be overwhelming.

This simple tool, called What to do when someone dies, from Sunlife will explain what needs to be done first and what follows next, supporting you with tips and checklists to make a challenging time just a little easier. Once you’ve dealt with the most urgent tasks, give yourself time before moving to the next step. You can go back to tool whenever you need to.
