MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Willing.com, the country’s leading online estate planning site, announces advanced features and technology to its innovative platform. We live in an information technology age, and the company continues to pave the way toward a simple and cost-effective future for estate planning. Willing, which has raised money from the likes of Y Combinator, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund and Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures, says the law is evolving to support a completely digital space for estate planning. It’s the only site fully dedicated to the topic and provides a much-needed option for those who cannot afford an attorney.
“Every year, 2.5 million people pass away and many of them leave behind a huge mess with expensive court costs,” said Willing CEO Eliam Medina. “The bottom line is that most people don’t plan properly, which ends up leaving behind a lot of work for loved ones. It just doesn’t have to be this way. My experience, prompted by a death in the family, is what inspired me to create Willing.com—so that everyone has an affordable and convenient option to make life easier on loved ones.”
Over 60 percent of adults die without a will because they can’t afford the hefty attorneys’ fees, they procrastinate, or they simply don’t think they need a will because they aren’t millionaires. Willing wants to educate people and change this perception: Willing’s Estate Planning packages start under $100 and include a Last Will and Testament, Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and probate avoidance documents (Transfer on Death Deed and/or Revocable Living Trust).
“We have people of all ages and situations coming to our platform, from new parents, to people with medical conditions, to those who have already experienced the headache of a family member or friend passing,” continues Medina. “We are your guide for the entire process, even in helping people avoid expensive court costs. It’s simply not fair to leave a mess behind, and our estate planning package includes everything that most people need at an affordable price.”
As baby boomers retire and demand for estate planning increases among young adults and new parents, online is quickly becoming a more practical and reliable estate planning option, while making the process easier; it is mostly programmatic, following a logic tree system to customize the documents.
Willing provides the following key attributes that set the site apart from other sites that offer wills and estate planning:
- Willing is the only site fully dedicated to estate planning and generates all documents needed at one time, unlike others that make you repeat the process for each document
- Software that only asks customers to enter information once and not repeatedly for each document
- Software with modern user experience design, for use by everyone, including the non-tech-savvy
- Generates deeds and other documents for avoiding probate (an expensive court process that many people overlook), saving customers’ families a lot of time and money
- Digital storage for easy updates
Coming soon, the site will offer online signing, with webcam notaries and witnesses, which will allow the technologically inclined to make their documents legally binding entirely online, rather than printing and signing the old fashion way. The company is also creating a platform to guide executors through settling the estates of decedents.
A majority of people put planning off for years, and Willing.com is set on changing that. So what are you waiting for? Estate planning documents start under $100. Get inspired by some of our customers and start your will by visiting www.willing.com.
