OK, I know most guys do NOT like talking about boring stuff like money, insurance, and investments so I’ll make this quick. EVERY man needs to have a piece of paper with the following information on it either in a place where a few people know where to find it or in the hands of a few people. I’ve done this and it takes maybe a couple of hours to pull the information together. But the good news is once you do it, you can pretty much forget about it.

Company Pension Account including Beneficiary, Account # and Contact Information
401K Account Number, Management Company Contact Information

Location of actual policy (needs to be in a safe or bank safety deposit box)

Location of your will. (If you don’t have one, get one NOW! If you don’t, someobody else will decide who gets your money)
That’s it. With this information anybody could take of your stuff if something happened to you. If you’re married, you cannot imagine how much peace of mind this piece of paper will give your wife. So turn the TV or computer off for a couple of hours and take care of your stuff!
