How Does It Work?
Each member can designate up to 20
different "Keyholders"®, each of whom has been given the power to unlock
their wishes when the time is right. For each such Keyholder®, the
member can specify what specific information they can unlock, such as
the member's health care directives, funeral wishes, final messages, uploaded files,
Power of Attorney, or Last Will and Testament.
Security mechanisms to prevent unauthorized premature access to these
documents are also available and are fully customizable by the member.
Here's how it works:
The Member creates their documents for the MyWill,
MyExpatWill, MyLivingWill, MyPowerOfAttorney,
MyLifeLocker, MyVault, MyFuneral, MyMessages and other services, and names at least one close
friend or family member as their Keyholder®. The documents are stored on
our secure server, and paper copies can also be printed.
The member's Keyholder(s)® are notified of their
responsibilities and given a secure ID to be used for accessing the
member's documents at the appropriate time. If the member wishes, they
can also send each Keyholder® their secure ID printed onto a plastic
wallet card for safe keeping.
The member can continue to make unlimited updates to
When the member becomes mentally incapacitated or
passes away, the member's Keyholder(s)® request to view the member's
documents on the server. To prevent premature access to the member's
documents, an automatic notification is sent to the member explaining
that a Keyholder® is attempting to view their documents.
If the member does not respond to the notification
within a period of time specified by the member, then the documents are
released to the member's Keyholder(s)®.
