Many individuals find themselves in a state of shock when they unexpectedly lose a close family member. The grief and anguish can be overwhelming enough, but the financial burden from funeral costs can add even more stress to a family that is already suffering. The emotional pain can also make it difficult for a relative to work or focus on everyday tasks, which may also put a strain on their personal finances.

In these trying times, we feel that it is important to have a network of support at your disposal. Here are some resources that you can use after the untimely death of a loved one.


For Parents

The death of a child is always devastating, but what do you do when the death was unexpected? What do you do when it’s your own child? It’s understandably common for parents to experience high levels of depression upon the death of their child.

For parents of children who have unexpectedly passed, here are both grief and financial assistance support organizations to help.

For Children

Children and teenagers often process grief differently from adults. They may deny that their loved one is gone, refuse to talk about them, or express any sadness, or they may regress back into the behavior patterns that they exhibited as a young child.

Special attention must be given to children who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Here are a few excellent resources that family members can introduce to a child to help through the grieving process.
