Longtime news agency Associated Press deemed Everplans a tool that makes dealing with death easier for those left behind.

In a recent story they touch on the broad range of life-areas we cover in addition to referencing our Professional platform:

Everplans guides users through everything they need to do, such as uploading information about life insurance policies or pensions. There's also room to leave letters to loved ones and a place to put passwords for emails and instructions on what to do with Facebook accounts and other social media sites.

The site charges $75 a year for the service. But about 150 financial firms and advisers around the country offer Everplans to their clients, sometimes for free, says co-founder and co-CEO Abby Schneiderman. Some employers are also starting to offer Everplans to workers as a benefit, she says.

Big thanks to Associated Press, and the many outlets that picked up the story (ABC News, The Daily Mail, The New York Post), for spreading the word about what we're doing.

California Governor Jerry Brown’s End of Life Option Act went into effect on June 9th, which allows terminally ill patients to request life-ending medication from their doctors provided they meet the following criteria:

  • Two or more doctors have agreed the patient has six months or less to live
  • Patients must be able to swallow the medication themselves
  • Patients must put their intentions to take the medication in writing 48 hours beforehand

California is the fifth state to permit this option at the end of life, joining the likes of Vermont, Oregon, Washington, and Montana.

As reported by NPR, while some view the landmark legislation as offering terminally-ill patients the utmost in compassionate care, others worry about the ramifications of making suicide a social institution.
