By John M. Campanola Special to the Pineapple Do you know where your critical documents are located? If a death in the family occurred would you know where to find the will, bank documents, insurance policies, and investment statements? would you even know whom to contact to get he documents you need? Are you in document disarray? Whether you are changing jobs, buying a home, caring for an aging loved one, experiencing a death in the family, or planning your retirement, major life events can send you into a document search tailspin. Just think about how many documents the bank requests when you apply for a home mortgage or the litany of current and historical documents that are needed to settle an estate. Because we don’t always tend to keep track of everything we have or might need to prepare for such events, unexpected circumstances send most of us scurrying to collect what’s required.
