When to use Notice of Death
If you have recently experienced the loss of a loved one, you are likely (and quite understandably) overwhelmed. Not are you forced to grapple with the emotional trials associated with losing a beloved family member or very close friend, you may be forced to grapple with numerous practical challenges in the wake of your loved one’s passing. From managing subscriptions and various services to processing your loved one’s mail and financial accounts, it may seem like there is no end of things that need to be done in order to get your loved one’s affairs in order.
Thankfully, using a formal “notice of death” template can help you to efficiently and effectively provide interested businesses, services and organizations with an announcement of your loved one’s death. In addition, keeping a record of where this notification has been sent may help to serve as evidence of your efforts to notify interested parties if any businesses, services, organizations, etc. contest when they should have ceased to stop charging your loved one for a membership, service or product.
You may use this notice of death letter template either proactively or reactively. You can choose to make a list of all accounts, memberships, services and subscriptions that need to be stopped in the wake of your loved one’s passing. Or, if it is easier and makes more practical sense for you, you can send out a notice each time a service, subscription, etc. comes up for renewal. This method may be easier if you are not quite sure of every account your loved one had in active use at the time of his or her death.
