None of us like to think about it, but if the worst were to happen, would your loved ones be prepared? Would they be able to find the information needed to access accounts, bills, to handle any of your medical wishes? That’s where the Just In Case folder comes in. It’s something we’ve implemented in our family, and it provides some peace of mind should the unexpected happen. Read more below.
Why You Need a ‘Just In Case’ Folder
Being prepared with a Just In Case folder can save your loved ones a lot of stress during a difficult time. This folder will be like a roadmap for them to navigate through your personal and financial matters, should you not be able to.
You can include your will, life insurance policies, bank account information, property deeds, and any other important documents.
It might also be helpful to jot down some notes or instructions about your wishes, like funeral preferences or who to contact in case of emergencies.
By having everything in one place, you’re making it easier for your family to handle your affairs and avoid unnecessary confusion during an already emotional period.
Sure, it’s not something we want to think about, but having a ‘Just In Case’ folder can bring some peace of mind, knowing your loved ones won’t be left scrambling to figure things out when you’re no longer around.
