How to make it easier on you, your family, and your loved ones.
All you need to know about end of life planning
What is end of life planning?
In short, end of life planning refers to any effort you make to prepare yourself and your family for your final days and your passing.
It’s a lot simpler than you might think.
End-of-life planning involves creating a checklist of the things you want to happen when you’re gone—and then making sure that those wishes are carried out.
Although we agree that thinking about your own passing can be quite confronting, we also firmly believe that end of life planning is crucial!
My end-of life planning
How do I start my checklist?
Your Myend account
We create free checklists that help you organize all the information about your end-of-life preferences, and we make it easy for your legacy contacts—your family members and friends who will be taking care of things after you’re gone—to see what their role will be and how they can help.
And we do all this in an easy interface that lets you keep track of everything at one time.
The service will help you plan for your end of life, so that your loved ones can know exactly what you want and need.
It’s easy to set up, and it only takes a few minutes and you don’t need a credit card to sign up.
Invite Legacy Contacts
A Legacy contact is someone who will be able to manage your last will and make sure that your wishes are carried out as you see fit.
Start cataloging your belongings
Create a list of all your belongings and leave a short description for each item. You can even add a beneficiary to each item so that when you pass away, someone close to you will be able to get them for themselves.
What is the worth of your estate?
Your estate is the total value of all your assets and debts. This is important to know because after you die, it may be inherited by someone else. Typically, when people inherit property, they also inherit debts owed by that property—if there are any.
It’s important to know what’s in your estate so you can make informed decisions about what happens to it after your death.
