Losing a loved one is difficult enough. Managing finances doesn’t have to be part of the burden.

SurvivorSupport provides personal financial planning from a dedicated, trained advisor and at least six months of follow-up support to your employees or their loved ones (a spouse, non-spouse or other survivor). We can help survivors navigate through a crisis by:

  • Sifting through notifications and important documents to streamline the financial implications of a loss

  • Creating a personal financial plan checklist

  • Providing estate planning/settlement and insurance guidance

  • Addressing short- and long-term cash flow concerns

  • Assisting with company benefits and understanding changes

  • Explaining obligations and priorities

  • Offering tax- and Social Security-planning assistance

Our advisors leverage expertise across Goldman Sachs to help those left behind gain clarity, confidence and control over their financial decisions. We partner with your benefits team to help employees or their surviving family members navigate your company’s offerings and policies—reducing the questions directed at your team.
