SAN DIEGO, October 18, 2022 – Trust & Will, the leading digital estate planning platform, today announced the launch of Trust & Will Probate, which provides online estate settlement and probate assistance. This product addition makes Trust & Will the first U.S. company to offer both digital estate planning and estate settlement benefits in one platform.
Probate is the legal process a person’s estate goes through after they pass away to distribute their assets to the proper heirs. There are estimated to be more than one million new probate cases in the U.S. each year, with up to 30% of deaths having to go through probate. The average time to settle an estate using a traditional attorney takes up to 14 months and roughly $10,000 in legal fees.
“For most of us, the process of inheriting wealth is complicated and antiquated. Trust & Will has revolutionized the estate planning industry since 2017, and now we are working to make the probate process simple, affordable, and convenient,” said Cody Barbo, Founder and CEO of Trust & Will. “In launching Trust & Will Probate, we will provide heirs and estate executors with a clear path to receive an inheritance through our comprehensive estate planning and settlement platform.”
The launch of Trust & Will Probate comes on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition of EZ-Probate, the nation’s leading digital probate settlement provider. It also coincides with the company’s fifth anniversary. Since its founding in 2017, Trust & Will has helped hundreds of thousands of families create an estate plan to leave their legacy.
Trust & Will Probate offers three tiers of service to accommodate a variety of budgets and estate sizes, with plans starting at $275 and ranging from self-guided prompts to comprehensive attorney support. Probate is currently available in 17 states and will be nationwide by the end of 2022. To learn more, visit trustandwill.com/probate.
