- Veterans will at no cost receive the GoodTrust Premium Plan for 12 months (value $96) when they create an account.
Creating a will is likely not anyone’s idea of a good time. The excuses are many: “It takes too long,” “It’s too expensive or complicated,” or “I don’t have enough in my life that would matter to anyone.” GoodTrust wants to dispel all those notions and provide a practical solution for everyone – especially for the nation’s millions of Veterans.
Data shows that more than two-thirds of Americans don’t have a will, leaving their families and loved ones in the dark in the event they pass away. GoodTrust encourages any Veteran to take just 15 minutes to complete their will online – for FREE. The holidays are a good time to ensure that those most important to you are taken care of.
GoodTrust offers a step-by-step wizard that makes creating a will easy, secure and comprehensive, and can be stored and shared within a GoodTrust account. When you’re finished creating a will with GoodTrust, it only requires two signatures from witnesses to make it legally valid.
Physical and digital assets
A will covers more than just what happens to your physical assets, like a home or car or computer. What about the guardianship of your minor children? Or your pets? Is it clear to family members what should happen to your priceless heirlooms, medals and awards? Half the battle is sometimes letting people know what exists so there’s nothing lost if left unclaimed.
Determining today who should receive any of your prized possessions can eliminate potential family friction down the road. Why have anyone argue about who gets what or leave them in a state of confusion? Providing clarity today will help family members later and your own peace of mind now.
GoodTrust can also make it possible to add a digital executor who can assist with any “digital remains,” like photos, videos, emails, financial accounts, online documents and more. Those memories and stories can be just as valuable to pass on as anything else in life. Plus, GoodTrust offers a Digital Vault that allows you to secure important accounts by designating what should happen to them (including social media, financial sites) and share critical documents, like a DD214 with Trusted Contacts (e.g. loved ones, family members).
Send Future Messages of hope today
GoodTrust also has an option for Future Messages, which allow anyone to send a heartfelt note on a date of your choosing. You could pick an anniversary or birthday, or an out of the blue time to see how someone is doing. GoodTrust offers a variety of templates to help you get started creating your message, and you can select your background, decide on the theme. GoodTrust takes care of the rest and ensures it’s delivered on time.
