Do you have a 'death file'?

Death is not a subject most of us like to think about, let alone plan for. But according to The Money Podcast's Justin Harrison and Dawie Bester we should all have a death file. Sound ominous? Find out more here.

Planning to die

Nobody really likes to talk about death, but the fact is none of us is going to escape it, so we may as well plan for it.

Unlike traditional estate planning which involves creating a will, possibly setting up a family trust and ensuring you nominate an executor for your estate, today we look at an additional element to make the transition of your death that little bit easier for your friends and family.

Take a listen as Justin and Dawie explain what a death file is, and why you need it.
