Do you know what will happen to your digital “stuff” when you die? What happens to your email accounts, social media profiles, photos, videos, online bank accounts, documents and more, when you pass?

Just as we arrange life insurance or wills for our physical possessions, we need to plan for the post-life experience for our digital stuff. Managing what happens to your digital stuff  is as important as deciding what happens to your physical assets when you die.

The GoodTrust digital-legacy platform gives you control over what happens to your digital assets and reputation when you pass away. Think of it like a virtual safety-deposit box for your digital accounts and information.

GoodTrust is extending a special offer to all Veterans to help preserve their digital legacy in a new and easy way – at no cost.

GoodTrust – Protecting Everyone’s Digital Legacy

No one likes to think about death. But the reality is that it’s all around us – through popular culture, life events, and perhaps never more so in recent memory than in 2020 with the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s also not far from the minds of our military service people as they devote their lives to protecting our country.

The new book, “Digital Legacy,” will help you learn what’s important with your online afterlife and ensure that your important digital assets are treated according to your wishes. Given that the average person spends close to seven hours per day online, it’s an essential read for everyone.

For a limited time, all Veterans will at no cost receive both the new e-book, Digital Legacy: Take Control Of Your Online Afterlife, and the GoodTrust premium service plan for 10 years (value $500) when you sign up at and check the “Veteran” box.

Instructions on how to download the Digital Legacy e-book from will be emailed to you.

How does GoodTrust work?

Once you’ve signed-up on, you’ll go through two simple steps:

  1. Add your important digital media accounts and documents – your social media, email, online documents, photos, financial accounts, life insurance, will, etc. For each account or document, you add instructions for what you want to happen if you pass away.
  2. Assign “deputies,” those friends, family or people you trust to manage your accounts and take action on your behalf. These folks are granted selective access to your accounts and documents along with the instructions you left for them.

GoodTrust keeps your data secure and uses two-factor authentication.

Don’t let your digital legacy get lost. This holiday season we hope you’ll consider reading the book – to give yourself and your loved ones a greater peace of mind.

Eligibility: All Veterans

GoodTrust is offering all Veterans the Premium GoodTrust Plan for FREE for the next 10 years (value $500) starting on 11/11/2020.

Sign up now on – be sure to check the “Veteran” box to claim the offer. It only takes 2-3 minutes. Offer expires on 12/31/2020. Instructions how to download the Digital Legacy e-book from will be emailed to you.

In addition, all Veteran families will receive a 50% discount on GoodTrust service fee when helping to manage the digital accounts of a Veteran that passed away. Using promotion code: “GoodTrustVeteran”.
