Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Today Family Archival Solutions (FAS) announced the launch of Legacy Planner 360, the most comprehensive and secure family crisis and end-of-life planning service that helps protect personal legacies and save families from additional stress, conflict, wasted time, and unnecessary expenses during and after a crisis and/or loss of a family member. Unlike other piecemeal services, Legacy Planner 360 goes well beyond digital document storage and tutorials to provide the most comprehensive online resource and physical storage available for end-of-life planning.
Many Americans do not adequately and properly execute end-of-life planning, which often makes the process of protecting and transferring their assets much more difficult, time consuming, and expensive for their families. In 2013, an estimated 120 million Americans do not have a basic estate plan, while annual unclaimed life insurance benefits now total an estimated $1 billion (1, 2). According to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, $33 billion in total property and cash remains unclaimed, including abandoned safety deposit boxes, inactive checking and savings accounts, uncashed checks, and forgotten stocks, bonds, and/or dividends among other assets (3). The majority of unclaimed insurance and assets will never be claimed.
“Simply put, we help save families from additional stress during and after the loss of a family member” said Mark Nicholas, CEO and co-founder of Family Archival Solutions. “Our service is designed to protect family members’ legacies, find their assets, preserve their digital storage, and carry out their special wishes without creating unnecessary risks of confusion, conflict, delay, bias or misconduct that often occur after a loved one passes away. We help families mitigate these risks so they can enjoy spending more time celebrating the precious memories of their loved ones.”
A Complete Solution for Complete Peace of Mind
Legacy Planner 360 provides the most comprehensive crisis preparation and end-of-life planning tools, giving individuals and families peace of mind that every detail is handled properly in the complex arena of estate administration. Key features include:
Instead of charging an ongoing monthly fee like some other services, Family Archival Solutions (FAS) makes it more cost-effective for families by charging a single, lifetime fee. FAS offers three service plans: Basic ($79.99), Premium ($149.99), and Concierge ($1,299). For a full comparison of each plan’s features, visit http://www.familyarchivalsolutions.com/comparison.
“As an attorney working for financial institutions, I have seen problems such as this almost on a daily basis,” remarked Nicholas. Failing to consider and act upon all of the issues around end-of-life planning, especially locating both physical documents and digital assets, makes life stressful and complex right when families need assistance the most. We created Legacy Planner 360 to solve this problem.”
“On a more personal level, my father was an educated, honest and sophisticated man. But despite his planning, we struggled to find his assets after he passed way, including documents that were hidden in password-protected and encrypted Quicken files,” added Nicholas. “We faced conflict from within the family and were left without contact information, knowledge of his online accounts, special wishes, and so forth. Had Legacy Planner 360 existed at that time, we could have had a much less stressful, quicker and smoother transition after his passing.”
