Although is not a pleasant thought, we all must face the inevitability of death. In most instances, when a death occurs, families and friends must attend to the affairs of the deceased. Very few of us have taken the time to prepare adequate information to assist our families through the difficult period. In fact, most people are not aware of what must be done after the death of an employee.
It is the policy of the Department of General Services (DGS) to offer to the spouse and/or immediate family of deceased employees all reasonable assistance necessary to consummate their final affairs.
