Death


DRAFT IN PROGRESS AND THOUGHTS

   There are many ways a person can leave their job or career.
   Potentially the last preferred but not necessarily the worst, is through death.
   We gather to celebrate achieving retirement and leaving the "rat race" behind.
   We do not celebrate the loss of those who make contributions but left too soon for retirement benefits.

   The plans needed for such outcomes are very close to planning for loss of life in retirement.
   The difference primarily comes from changes in how the company handles benefits and payments
   due to the death while employed versus transition into retirement.

   
   GET INPUT FROM SR HR PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COMPANY PERSPECTIVES
   - differences on payout of retirement benefits from death versus pending retirement
   - differences on medical coverage for dependents from death versus pending retirement
   - differences on tax liabilities for dependants
   - assistance on required government paperwork
   - guidance on impacts of putting received funds in one place versus other options
   - guidance on financial matters: do I pay off any loans, where should I invest, where is money safe?
   - guidance on emotional issues from counselors, religious groups, others
   - internal non-public programs to assist surviving spouses
   - options on the remains and services: land burial, sea burial, cremation, internment, military taps, etc.
