The renowned publication preaches the value of Digital Estates and how Everplans can help.

U.S. News & World Report has emphasized the growing need to take your Digital Estate into account when planning, and guess who they named as one of the go-to sources? Ok, you don't have to guess. It's us.

"Everplans is one of several companies that allow you to create a digital repository of your wills, health care directives, funeral wishes, plans for your pet, desires for your Facebook page, what you'd like to see in your obituary, family photos and even your grandpa's cherished spaghetti recipe. You can enter information during your life that you want your family to find when you die or share information with family now."

Here's the quote from our co-founder, Abby Schneiderman:

"I can't tell you how important it is to have all this information in one place," says Abby Schneiderman, co-founder of Everplans, which started out as a content site and then grew into a planning platform after her brother's death in a car crash in 2012. "It helps people get together all of the important information and documents the family needs in the event of an emergency or, even worse, a death."

The article also provides some helpful planning tips, including seven factors to consider when embarking on end-of-life planning:

  • Legal documents
  • Digital legacy
  • Business future
  • End-of-life wishes
  • Funeral plans
  • Assets
  • Day-to-day details

The good news is you can do all of this in an Everplan. And more!
