At Lindquist's Mortuaries/Cemeteries, our service to you and your family extends far beyond the funeral. We provide a very comprehensive, no-cost AfterCare program in order to help with some of the most pressing and important tasks following the death of a loved one.
For example, we are considered experts in the area of Federal Employees Civil Service Benefits and are called upon many times to help in the training of our local civil service employees. We are proud to provide the benefit of this expertise to our community at no cost or obligation.
Within a few days after the service, one of our experienced Family Service Counselors will be available to answer questions on the following topics:
We will notify Social Security and assist you in completing the necessary requirements for survivor/dependent benefits.
We can assist you with the claim process for life insurance benefits as well as help you in updating any other life insurance policies pertaining to surviving spouse or loved ones. We will also provide helpful information on property and auto insurance, mortgage insurance, and make sure that your health insurance coverage is continued through Medicare, Medi-Gap, COBRA, CHIP, Civil Service or other policies.
TITLE AND DEED TRANSFERS
We will help you make a list of the items that need to be transferred and provide you with the appropriate county offices to contact.
FINANCIAL AND RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS
We will assist you with updating your bank and credit union account information, 401 (k) s, pension plans, I R A s, Railroad Retirement, F E G L I and Civil Service benefits.
We will provide information about how to handle outstanding balances including the steps to cancel credit cards.
UPDATING WILLS, LIVING WILLS, LIVING TRUSTS, AND POWERS OF ATTORNEY
We can help you change beneficiaries and provide probate information.
FINAL TAX RETURN
We'll discuss the necessary steps for filing a final tax return for the deceased.
You will also be given a free, 12-month subscription to My Careletter, our monthly care letter. Each issue contains articles written by grief and recovery professionals. These timely and thoughtful care letters are sent to you free of charge in the hopes that they will help ease the pain of your loss. A selection of My Careletter articles are available elsewhere on this site under Grief Support.
