COTA Victoria is seeking input from consumers to update our in-depth resource Death of a Partner: a practical guide for partners and families.
The simple, practical guide helps you understand what to do following the death of a partner. It was originally completed in May 2018 with considerable, valuable input from two skilled COTA Victoria volunteers who had witnessed first-hand the complexities facing families after the death of a family member.
The guide includes a simple checklist, as well as detailed instructions and contact details for organisations that can help. It covers topics including:
- funerals, burials and cremation
- settling the estate
- accessing and closing accounts
- providing notification of the death
- looking after yourself.
Download Death of a Partner: a practical guide for partners and families or request a printed copy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 1300 13 50 90. A small printing and postage charge may apply for non-pensioners.
To contribute to updating this resource, please consider the guide via the above link and complete a brief survey by 25 February 2020.
We thank you for your input!
