Lost and Found
The death of a spouse is made doubly frustrating by the mountains of financial and bureaucratic paperwork that one normally has to sort out. Lost and Found: Finding Self-Reliance After the Loss of a Spouse by tax and estate attorney P. Mark Accettura and financial planner Steven J. Case is for widows and widowers bewildered by their new financial landscape. While there's a section on grieving (guest-written by hospice president Dorothy E. Deremo), most of the book is a practical, step-by-step guide to navigating insurance forms, Social Security, retirement fund distributions, estates and taxes after one's loss.
