Commonly Asked Questions

What is Posterity?

Posterity is a platform that allows you to make a plan in the event something happens to you.

It’s designed to help you make arrangements for a wide variety of topics and scenarios that are relevant to your life, while keeping your loved ones in the loop by providing them easy access to all the details and up-to-date documents they would need if you’re no longer here.

Its features include wizards and guides to help you create arrangements, generate legal documents to make your plan legally binding, and much more.

All this in addition to powerful sharing features that allow you to give the people closest to you direct access to your plan, while remaining in control of who can see what and when.

How can my plan become legally binding?

Posterity will automatically generate all the documents required to make your plan legally binding in your state. This includes typical estate planning documents, such as your legal will, notary self-proving affidavit, etc.

Printed copies of these documents will be mailed to your address at no additional cost for signature. Upon receiving them, you’ll be able to scan a QR code to access step-by-step instructions on how to proceed.

This process is repeated every time you make a change to your plan, with Posterity intelligently detecting if your current documents need to be replaced.

How does sharing work?

We’ve designed Posterity to make it easy for you to share information with the people you care about, all while giving you complete control over what information is revealed to whom, and when.

For example, you can share your plan with the person you chose to be your legal representative. In that case, they’d receive an invitation to create their own account, and be allowed to see everything you gave them permission to see.

You can also schedule something to only be revealed to its recipient if you pass away. For example, you may prefer to keep a gift private from its recipient for the time being. In this scenario, that information will remain secret until one of your family members submits a valid death certificate to Posterity.

How would my family access my plan if something happens to me?

Your loved ones would be able to access your plan from their own accounts, which are created when you first share an arrangement with them. Naturally, your privacy settings would remain in effect, with each person only allowed to access what you explicitly chose to share with them.

Your account and all the information it contains would be preserved and remain accessible for 24 months.

How much does Posterity cost?
