End-of-life admin service Settld has launched a new pre-death preparation package aimed at individuals and families who want to get their affairs in order.
Settld has joined forces with various partners to deliver a Get Stuff Sorted programme, offering hands-on advice and practical assistance to prepare paperwork and legal matters regarding end-of-life admin.
Over 31 million adults in the UK don’t have wills or Powers of Attorney in place to protect their loved ones and families, according to Canada Life.
Many also haven’t recorded their final wishes or put the rest of their affairs in order.
“Our online programme has been designed with various organisations to ensure customers can put their admin affairs in order,” said Vicky Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Settld, adding that “doing so means that their partners and families won’t face as much emotional stress and unnecessary paperwork following their death.”
This, said Wilson, involves getting the “important stuff” done from start to finish in as little as four weeks:
“Our virtual training and advice sessions help people through the difficult legal and admin trails, and are tailor-made for each individual that signs up.”
The training module, including assistance with wills, powers of attorney, and storage of documents, is the latest offering from multi-award winning Settld, which recently announced a new partnership with Starling Bank.
This new partnership will streamline account administration for those handling the affairs of a Starling customer who has died, allowing the bereaved’s next of kin to notify a death to the bank and all other relevant service providers in one go using Settld’s award-winning online service.
Launched in February 2021, Settld enables members of the public to notify a death to over 970 market leading service providers across the UK, from banks and insurers to energy firms, mobile providers, subscription services, social media platforms and others.
Settld’s online service also helps users close, transfer or amend accounts as well as obtaining date of death balances for probate.
