The world lost one of its greatest and most accomplished basketball players on Sunday, January 26, 2020. Early in the morning, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year old daughter, along with seven others, died when the helicopter they were in crashed amidst foggy conditions in the hills of Calabasas, California. Kobe was 41.
Losing a husband brings grieving and heartache enough without the unanticipated leap into the deep end of personal financial management. And Kobe’s death reminds us that if your husband were to die, you now have special considerations when planning your financial future.
