No matter what stage of life someone is in, Everplans can help get a plan in place. Everplans offers clear, unbiased articles to help users think through tough decisions and learn about their options, and tools to help people get things done. For people supporting a friend in a crisis or in grief, Everplans has resources for comfort and etiquette. Everplans' step-by-step approach breaks the process into manageable pieces, so users feel empowered in the decisions and plans that they're making.
The Everplans mission is twofold:
1. To empower people to make confident decisions about how they want to be treated at the end of their lives
2. To encourage more advance planning to avoid making stressful, expensive decisions under pressure and to allow people to take better care of their families
To accomplish this, Everplans has hundreds of one-of-a-kind articles on a range of topics that are crafted with an eye toward helping consumers understand the choices they face and decide for themselves what the best option is for their situation.
Everplans has dozens of tools and resources for things like finding state-by-state advance directive forms, buying life insurance, purchasing a casket, and where and how to store and share personal files and information.
One of Everplans’ featured tools is Funeral Update. Funeral Update’s free funeral websites allow users to share information about the funeral and surrounding events, notify family and friends of the details, and update everyone at once if anything changes. Visitors to Funeral Update will be prompted to start getting a handle on their own end-of-life planning.
