AfterSteps is a tool that people can use to help get their estates in order before they pass away. The online planning service guides its users through the steps that are necessary to create comprehensive estate plans, financial plans, funeral plans, and legacy plans. By locking these plans into place, people who use AfterSteps can achieve peace of mind and relieve stress on grieving family members after their eventual deaths.
In an effort to simplify and streamline the process of creating a comprehensive end-of-life plan, AfterSteps has put together a series of interactive checklists and informative articles that you can read once you’ve signed up for an account. Using AfterSteps’ checklists, you can start gathering copies of your wills, insurance policies, and healthcare proxies. When you get to a checklist item that you haven’t already completed, such as putting together an advanced directive, for example, AfterSteps will match you up with a vendor who can help you complete that task. The documentation you’ve scanned and stored online will remain safe and secure until after you pass away. At that point, AfterSteps will automatically transfer your plan to the beneficiaries you have designated.
Some of the unique features that AfterSteps offers are its personalized reminders and alerts. Using these, the web-app will automatically notify users when changes in local regulations require that they make updates to their estate plans and wills. The service will also help users make decisions on what should happen to their online social networking and email accounts when they die. For people who want peace of mind knowing that their loved ones will be secure after their deaths, AfterSteps is a great solution.
