Everplans, the online estate and legacy planning platform for individuals and families that advisors can provide to clients, has secured $6.4 million of Series A venture capital funding from Transamerica Ventures — the corporate venture arm of Transamerica and Aegon — and Reinsurance Group of America’s RGAx VC subsidiary.
Everplans has more than 100 firms as clients — advisors, estate planning attorneys and insurance agents — who use Everplans Professional, the enterprise version of Everplans’ online service. That service helps end clients (whether they are near death or disablement or not) to help their family members deal with their eventual demise by providing the practical and emotional plans, preferences and information that can make survivors’ lives so much easier after a loved one’s death. The service can also provide comfort to the end client that her or his wishes will be granted for everything from the music to be played at their funerals to passing on their favoritie recipes or securely delivering critical IDs and passwords to responsible family members after they die. Everplans Professional puts advisors in a central role in helping clients build their legacy plan. In addition to creating the plan, Everplans clients gain access to a wide range of content and checklists to help educate and guide their legacy plannning efforts.
Everplans is led by tech entrepreneurs, cofounders and co-CEOs Abby Schneiderman and Adam Seifer.
“Everplans is absolutely the place to store the high-value passwords that your family would need,” Schneiderman said in an email. “So for example, if you did have a password manager you might consider storing your master password in your Everplan.”
