Half of Americans (50%) said the pandemic made them realize how unprepared they were for a serious emergency.
What have you done to plan for an emergency, incapacity, or even death?
We work with our clients to address End of Life Matters but if you aren’t ready to hire an attorney this where you can start thinking about End of Life and the resources below can assist. We don’t recommend ever doing your Estate Planning documents online which one of these companies offers but these companies have other valuable resources and products that are helpful in deciding what kind of funeral you want, what messages, stories, or life lessons do you want to pass on to those you leave behind, and what to do with social media.
Some great resources for End of Life Planning:
- For mom and dad who are not computer savvy Amazon has a book titled Peace of Mind Planner and they can write down all the information of their trusted advisor and funeral plans: https://www.amazon.com/Peace-Mind-Planner-Information-Belongings/dp/1441317295/ref=sr_1_2dchild=1&keywords=I+am+dead+now+what+planner&qid=1595282163&sr=8-2.
- For our Millenials who want everything online, this is a great digital version of the above and has a fairly low cost of less than $100 a year: https://www.everplans.com/
- For our friends that are on a budget, this option is not as detailed or as-built out as EverPlans but is online and it is free: https://www.joincake.com/profile/
These are great starting places if you are not ready to create your Estate Plan. We help clients create Estate Planning Documents, address their Social Media and Digital Estates, make an Estate plan for children and pets plus we discuss and refer our clients to professionals who dive deeper with the client on long term care insurance, pre-need funeral planning, and life insurance. So at the end of the process, they have a complete End of Life Plan in place.
