Sureify Announces Strategic Partnership With FreeWill To Broaden Access To Estate Planning Products Among Clients Of Leading Life Insurance Carriers
SAN JOSÈ, Calif., August 17, 2023 –Insurtech leader Sureify and estate planning platform FreeWill have announced a strategic partnership that will help more of America’s top Insurers provide estate planning benefits to their clients and prospects. This partnership will enable FreeWill’s estate planning solutions to be integrated with life insurance tools that together offer a seamless way for individuals and families alike to create their end-of-life plans.
FreeWill helps more than 200,000 Americans write wills and revocable living trusts each year, more than any other digital estate planning tool. By partnering with Sureify, FreeWill’s easy-to-use estate planning solutions can be distributed and implemented easily across the respective footprints of several of America’s largest life insurance providers. This will allow FreeWill to scale its enterprise platform, which includes building embedded, custom sites that offer convenience to end-consumers while offering advanced insights and analytics tools to clients.
Sureify’s cutting-edge technology and LifetimeENGAGE product have already transformed the life insurance experience for many carriers, enabling them to connect with customers in new and meaningful ways. By partnering with FreeWill, its customers will be better equipped to provide estate planning resources, a critical element of financial planning that is all too often neglected because of perceived cost and complexity.
“FreeWill is a well-known, highly regarded estate planning platform, and this partnership will provide a truly integrated solution that addresses the interconnected needs of life insurance and estate planning,” said Dustin Yoder, Sureify Founder & CEO. “We foresee this partnership as a way to empower individuals and families to protect their loved ones financially, and we believe carriers are eager to offer this benefit to their customers. “
“We are thrilled to partner with Sureify as we continue to scale our enterprise offering to a variety of financial institutions, including life insurers,” added Jenny Xia Spradling, co-CEO of FreeWill. “Estate planning is one of the most important elements of financial planning, yet at the same time, just 30% of Americans have a will. There’s definitely an access problem. By aligning with Sureify – a digital partner to many life insurers – we’re confident that we can help more carriers deliver solutions while driving brand loyalty and solving a continued societal challenge.”
The integration of FreeWill’s estate planning capabilities within Sureify’s digital product suite is expected to fuel additional growth for both companies and for the life insurers with whom they work. The partnership will ultimately empower individuals to make informed decisions about their financial and estate planning needs quickly and easily.
