Keep a close eye on your mail

Keep a close eye on your mail

OrganizationComments

One lesson I learned the hard way, was that you need to stay up to date with all the official mail you get. Once you start managing the funds, insurance, and health care of someone, you can expect your inflow of mail to at least quadruple, not counting the junk mail you will receive.

What I found out is that the envelopes that contain checks for overpayments or refunds from insurance, look exactly like the ones that contain the standard statement of services. So, while you may be tempted to let some of these go unopened, you are much better off opening everything that you receive right away, and taking a quick glance at it to confirm what it is. Then if you have to put off dealing with it, at least you will know where you stand.
