Financial Advice for Widows & Widowers

Getting help as a widow or widower from CA Financial Services.

 A recent bereavement could mean that you’re currently going through one of the toughest times in your life. You may feel that the future is uncertain and be experiencing some anxiety, especially in regards to your financial future.

It’s possible that your significant other tended to look after the financial side of your family, and now you’re worried about that responsibility being shifted onto you whilst you are still processing your loss.

It can seem intimidating initially, not knowing where to start, working out which steps have to be taken to keep your financial life on the rails. What things can’t be pushed back? Is it possible to postpone important decisions until a more manageable time?

Chances are that the main thing you’re looking for right now financially is reassurance. It’s important in this tough time to feel confident that you and your family will be okay. Your life may have changed but you want to know your living life in this new stage to the fullest, even when your partner isn’t here anymore.

Next comes our analysis and we begin to design your financial plan. Once we have all of your relevant details, we use our expertise to understand your situation on a professional level After we have finished analysing, we put together your individually-designed plan.
