Get your ‘house’ in order

Modern Woodmen members can access resources to help with both sides of the late-in-life/end-of-life planning conversation.

My Life, My Plan workbook

This resource helps individuals get organized and share their final wishes with their loved ones. The easy-to-follow guide breaks end-of-life planning down into manageable, bite-size chunks. Users work through the steps to help get their houses in order, organize their affairs and record their wishes. The workbook includes:

  • Possessions inventory.
  • Final-arrangements planner.
  • Obituary template.
  • Online accounts document.
  • Life insurance needs analysis.
  • Much more!

Available as a printed booklet or fillable PDF.

My Life, My Plan – A Helper’s Guide

This resource provides advice for those who want to help a parent, spouse, relative or friend prepare his/her final wishes. The guide offers tips for holding end-of-life planning conversations – from the helper’s perspective. It also helps prepare members for the eventual loss of a loved one, sharing:

  • Steps to take after a death.
  • Tips for handling a loved one’s affairs.
  • Information about the grief process.
  • Links to helpful resources.

Available as a printed booklet or fillable PDF.

To be eligible for either resource, you must be a member with Modern Woodmen life insurance or annuity coverage. (The certificate must be in your own name and in good standing.)

How to order
