My boyfriend and I have lived together for 13 years but he is still officially married to another woman. He has a life insurance policy and I’m the beneficiary, and I’m also the beneficiary of his 401(k). Do we need a will and do I have to worry about his wife getting the money?
Talking about death is not the most fun thing to do, especially when yours is the main topic. For this reason, you may postpone writing your will. You still have to write your will, if you want particular people to be in charge of your belongings after you pass away.
When a loved one passes away, there are usually various arrangements that need to be made. One of the tasks to oversee will involve reporting the death to the Social Security Administration.
