Widow Support Program

What to do when your husband dies

When a woman's husband dies, she can experience a range of emotions. You may have felt some of these same feelings when your spouse passed on.  Those feelings don't go away instantly.  Indeed, when you start working with money issues after your partner is gone, you may feel emotionally overwhelmed.

What you are feeling is normal.  You are not going crazy!
