The Guide Efterlevandeguiden.se, is a website with aggregated information from the authorities to help those who have recently lost someone close. Launched in September 2016, the service is a unique initiative and collaboration between three Swedish government agencies, namely, the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, the Swedish Pensions Agency and the Swedish Tax Agency.
As a survivor, it may be difficult to know which authority is responsible for what, and who to contact. The Guide collects the information on one website. It describes in the form of a checklist the high priority actions to take when someone close has passed away. The focus is on practical things, e.g., information about what it means to administer the estate of the deceased or to make an estate inventory.
The Guide has received a lot of attention, prizes and commendations, and has become appreciated by survivors and those who meet people in mourning.
