Wills & Probate | What Do People Really Think About The Bereavement Process?

Updated: Aug 31, 2021

I have recently come across The Bereavement Index 2021 and the results were quite unfortunate, particularly that 40% of those who recently lost someone say their mental health was affected by dealing with the administrative work that is involved.

To compound matters, 88% of legal professionals say that they believe that the bereavement process is “slow and inefficient”.

I can understand where professionals the results refer to are coming from, as they also refer to financial institutions being the biggest cause for delay (which they say 64% of their clients cause them distress).

Whilst many individuals feel that they can take on the burden of administering an estate, it can not only be very complicated and time-consuming but also very stressful, only causing effects to their mental health whilst they are already going through a bereavement.

A probate professional can take that stress away from you and allow you to bereave for your missed loved one.
