Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.

This book helped guide me through a difficult time. It reads easy and follows like a recipe book. I would recommend it to any friend who has experience the loss of a spouse. The Author takes a very difficult subject and makes it understandable. Furthermore, I was able to get back to the business of taking care of business.

Format: Paperback
When a life partner dies, the widow or widower is faced with a multitude of decisions at once, at a time of emotional depletion when even one decision is experienced as overwhelming. This book is a handy and well-thought-out compendium of ideas and insights and suggestions that can make the early months of loss more manageable.
The first chapter tackles the psychological: several compassionate stories are offered that make the complexities of mourning seem more "normal." These men and women got through it, and thus, so can you. The rest of the chapters cover financial issues, taxes, social security, and so on, including some thoughts about funeral arrangements.
Written by experts in their fields, these chapters offer up-to-date information and provide an excellent starting point for getting back on one's feet. An extensive Directory of Resources is valuable in itself.
