Please accept my deepest condolences and please take your time and not rush in making any financial decision.
I commend you for having purchased a life insurance a few years back, as you mentioned. When I have clients in a similar situation I always advise them taking some time to process it all. The most important decisions you already have made, which is to purchase a life insurance a few years back
I would definitely update the beneficiary information on the "other account" you mention. Not sure if your husband had a pension or not or any other retirement plan. If so please contact the Human Resource department of your late husband to make sure you update the necessary forms. Or at least find out what your options are.
I would highly recommend visiting an estate attorney to update your legal documents.
In the process take your time to interview a few advisors that are registered with the SEC. That would be my first question to ask the advisor.
As you are interviewing and looking for an advisor, find out if they would be willing to educate you on your options. Is financial and investment education part of their onboarding client process? Ask yourself, would you see yourself having a cup of coffee/tea with this person? As an advisor myself, I do the same thing when talking to a prospective client.
All in all the best thing to do is to take your time don’t rush in making any hasty decisions.
I wish you all the best and strength during this time.
