What Documents Should I Look for After Someone Dies?

These documents will include what the deceased person owned, a list of their creditors and the amount of money owed at the time of death. To help get you started, here is a list of documents that need to be located:

  1. Account statements
  2. Life insurance policies
  3. Beneficiary designations
  4. Deeds for real estate
  5. Automobile and boat titles
