The Financial Aftermath

Surviving a Suicide Loss: A Financial Guide

You may face financial surprises and challenges after a suicide.

For example, a life insurance policy you were counting on may deny you benefits because of a suicide exclusion clause.

You may discover debts from a deeply depressed family member who was not paying their bills, or from the wild spending spree of someone experiencing a manic state as part of their mental disorder. You may be concerned about paying for the funeral, or about college tuition for you or your children.

You will find practical information about coping with the financial aftermath of suicide loss in After a Suicide: A Financial Guide (available as a free download, or by ordering a free copy from the AFSP Store).
