When you're dealing with a loss, paperwork is one of the last things you want to deal with, although often it's necessary. An Employee Death Benefits Letter is a simple way to get information - and maybe benefits - from a loved one's former employer. If you're the beneficiary, this is your money. It can help offset memorial costs and provide for a more comfortable life. There might be employer-specific life insurance policies in place. You might not have had conversations about benefits when your loved one was alive, and there might be perks you don't even know about. You might even be able to avoid probate, if most of the assets are in pension and profit-sharing plans or life insurance and joint tenancy assets. However, you may have to file death tax returns, so it is advisable to consult a lawyer. Using an Employee Death Benefits Letter helps determine what you may be entitled to.
