Who Is Your Next Of Kin? by pareto(m): 8:04am On Mar 29, 2008
Hi landers, I have been thinking about this for some time, now i decide to bring it up. So, who do you use as your next of keen? Because it seems most of us just fill in any name and later brings problem when sth important happens. Your spouse, brother, sister or children and why?
Re: Who Is Your Next Of Kin? by uspry1(f): 8:22am On Mar 29, 2008
Depend on the situation where you fill out the applications to write down who is your next kin as follow below:

1. on job applications, i put down my sister as my next kin.

2. on hospital admission on pre-surgery, i put down my mom as my next kin.

3. on life insurance upon my death, i put down my children to split 50-50 percent as two beneficatory.

4. on bank account opening, i put down my older child as beneifactory.

5. on college admission, i put down my mom as next kin.

The purpose of finding out who your next kin is for authorized person such as hospital, police, human resource, etc to be notified by phone or in person in case of emergency or death or accident.

If you are married, it has to be your spouse. Especially your bank account. You don't want your "next of kin" brother taking all your money while your spouse is struggling to cater for your children. It has to be your spouse.
Re: Who Is Your Next Of Kin? by HRhotness(f): 11:19am On Mar 29, 2008
if u'r single its usually ur parents (or children)
its only ever ur siblings if ur parents are dead and u dont have children

Seun you are very right, especially with the mentality over here, backed up by our cultural norms

The next of kin thing.
It's always as has been a complicated issue oh!
but the wise shall understand. Those who are wise always prepare their house well before anything. it sometimes depend on how someone is close or related to you.
For me, in the past few years did choose my immediate younger sister as my next-of-kin, if am married, both my wife and sister, would be my next of kin in different situations.

@Seun has said it correctly.

@HR.hotness has said it correctly too!

I am divorced mother of two children, still remain single. I refuse putting my ex-husband as next of kin, NO WAY! NO WAY!
Re: Who Is Your Next Of Kin? by larekey(m): 3:01pm On Mar 29, 2008
the issue of next of kin is quite sensitive because we would not want anybody that didn't deserve it to inherit what we have worked very hard for.
As for me since i am single my next of kin is my Mum, when i'm married and start a family it'd be my children and my my wife would be the executrix of my estate.

Re: Who Is Your Next Of Kin? by SamMilla1(m): 2:29am On Mar 30, 2008
this next of kin thing depends on the situation sorounding the reasons for the call, there are things the next of kin could be urgently required to do and that rules out kids, and there are things that you cannot just change the previous next of kin because you gave birth to a kid

[size=13pt]It depends on the case in question. I use my younger brother but if it's something with a lot of responsibility I use my dad or mum and when I get married it will be my wife whether it's a WILL or a BILL[/size]
