Getting divorced

Life Events > Getting Divorced
Managing the financial aspects of a divorce may be just as important as coping with the emotions. These resources can help you transition from "ours" to "mine" and "yours."
Keep in mind:
Cancel all joint checking, savings and revolving credit accounts, such as credit cards.
Establish accounts in your name for ATMs, checking, savings and credit cards.
Update the beneficiary designations of your existing retirement accounts and insurance policies.
