How does Sharing After Death work?

 Take a look at our Sharing After Death Video Walkthrough.

When you add a new Deputy (or change an existing Deputy’s permissions) we’ll ask you to choose which sections of your plan you want to share now, and which sections should be locked until after you’re gone.

Any sections that you’ve chosen to lock until after your passing will remain unavailable to your Deputies until the time comes.

In order for your After Death sections to be unlocked, you must give one of your Deputies the responsibility and permission to report your death to Everplans and initiate the unlocking process.

After reporting your death, the Deputy must wait for a period of time while Everplans attempts to contact you via email with the opportunity to block the unlocking. You can choose a wait time for your Deputy of up to 30 days.

If we do not hear back from you and the wait time expires, you are marked as deceased in our database, and your “After Death” sections are unlocked for all your Deputies.
