Here’s a feature we know is important to many of you (though not something any of us like to think about) -- sharing information only after you’ve passed away.

Since launching Everplans, many of you have requested the ability to reveal information in your Everplan only after you’ve passed away. Our new Sharing After Death feature lets you do exactly that: decide which sections of your Everplan you want to share with each Deputy now, and which sections should only be shared after you’re gone.

How Sharing After Death Works

When you add a new Deputy (or change an existing Deputy’s permissions) we’ll ask you to choose which sections of your plan you want to share now, and which sections should only be shared after your death.

Any sections that you’ve chosen to keep private until after your death will remain locked from your Deputy’s view.

For details of this new feature, see our Walkthrough Video

How “After Death” Sections Get Unlocked

In order for your “After Death” sections to be unlocked, you must give one of your Deputies the responsibility and permission to report your death to Everplans.

After reporting your death, the Deputy must wait while Everplans attempts to contact you via email with the opportunity to block the unlocking. You can choose a wait time for your unlockers of up to 30 days.

If we do not hear back from you and the wait time expires, you are marked as deceased in our database, and your “After Death” sections are unlocked for all your Deputies.

For details of this new feature, see our Walkthrough Video

Who Should I Consider For My Unlocker(s)?

Sharing After Death works on the basis of trust. Your unlockers should be individuals you trust and understand your wishes. They should be in good health and be able to take on this responsibility when the time comes. If you are working with a professional, such as a trusted advisor or attorney, you might consider asking them to be your unlocker.

Sections you might want to hide vs. sections you want to keep sharing.

The Sharing After Death feature was built based on the feedback we heard from you. Many of you expressed wishes to hide some of the more sensitive pieces of your Everplans, such as financial details, wills, letters to your friends and family, and passwords to your online accounts.

On the other hand, there are certain pieces of information we suggest you keep sharing with your Deputies. For example, your loved ones will need access to your Health & Medical information such as an Advance Directive and Health Care Proxy. They will also need immediate access to your Funeral Preferences when the time comes. Please keep these situations in mind as you use the Sharing After Death feature.

  • Users who had applied a 100% off coupon could not add a credit card at a later date.
  • Some users were briefly unable to reset their passwords. This has been fixed.

2017 has been an amazing year for the company and we want to thank everyone for being a part of it.

 

As we look back on such an incredible year for Everplans we want to take a moment to celebrate some of the highlights:

have a heart

Everplans had over 7 million pageviews on our website, educating people from all over the world with our special blend of informative, interesting, and easy-to-digest articles, features, and checklists. (Check our favorite content from 2017 here.)

People put hundreds of thousands of pieces of information into their Everplans - helping family members sleep better at night all across the globe. Also, tens of thousands of people have created Everplans and gone above and beyond for their families.

cold brew coffee

In order to fuel the staff to make all this possible, we (and by “we,” we mean “Bart and Taylor”) drank over 160 gallons of cold brew. (That’s coffee.)

pile of bagels

Our most frequent Tuesday team meeting snack was bagels.

harris bueller

This was one of our favorite -- and probably least creepy -- snack pun photoshops (Note: The person responsible for the snack that week is honored with one of these works of art...whether they want it or not.)

pie-off contest

The winners of our company food challenges were Harris for Lasagna and Meatballs (which makes him an honorary Italian), Adam for Chili and Apple Pie (Abby won in 2016...she wants to make sure people know this) and Yoko for the most creative culinary concoctions we’ve never even heard of before. Recipes are in our Everplans. (You have to be a Deputy to see them.)

We were featured in some amazing press including The New York Times, USA Today, Financial Advisor Magazine, Yahoo! Finance, and U.S. News & World Report.

Our team grew to 30 people this past year, with 26 in our New York City office and 4 members in Lagos, Nigeria through our partnership with the wonderful Andela organization.

It’s actually much more than 10, but if we put the real number in the headline you might have become too overwhelmed by all the goodness.

Where did 2017 go? Seriously, we’ve been looking all over for it (even under the couch.) In the meantime, why not check out all these interesting, informative, and downright entertaining features we crafted over the past 12 month.
