How to Add a 'Legacy Contact' to Access Your Account

What is a legacy contact?

A legacy contact is a person you designate to have read-only access to your Trust & Will account data and information after your death, subject to proof of death and identity.

How does a designated legacy contact access account information?

Upon your death, your designated legacy contact may contact our Member Support team for access to your Trust & Will account data and information, subject to proof of death and identity.

What will a legacy contact get access to?

Your legacy contact will see your account data, such as an inventory of assets and an unsigned digital copy of estate plan documents. 

Under today’s laws, the unsigned estate plan document stored on the Trust & Will website is not legally enforceable.  Make sure your executor or trustee knows where to find the executed (fully signed) version of your estate plan.
