The Sunset Plan, an end-of-life planning service, has launched a new online platform allowing people to upload, organise, store and share important information, wishes and memories.
The ‘digital vault’, launched by the north Wales-based company, is designed to modernise end-of-life planning, with the aim of protecting people and preparing their loved ones for the future.
The Sunset Plan says this bridges a gap in the market for services that help families locate important paperwork and account details, rather than focusing solely on drafting wills and organising a Lasting Power of Attorney.
Founder Kerry Jones, who launched the company in early 2020, said: “I myself have experienced many unexpected challenges in dealing with after-life matters following a family bereavement. The website was launched to provide a central directory of ‘how to’ resources focusing on dealing with admin tasks, which I found out first-hand can make a difficult time even more stressful.”
“After experiencing the huge challenges with unravelling a life after death, you realise just how little people actually plan ahead. We spend so much time planning for life’s other major events, but many still struggle to deal with proactively planning for death. This exciting service will enable our clients to easily and securely prepare and protect their loved ones for the future.”
The legacy planning service enables future wishes and decisions to be recorded, and allows the user to store and share memories.
Customers could also extend account access to other professional services that are involved in their end of life planning.
