Trust & Will and Notarize partner to deliver end-to-end digital will


Trust & Will has launched an end-to-end digital Will service powered by Notarize, a platform for legally signing and notarising documents online.

Cory McCormick, a Las Vegas police officer, was the first person to sign the USA’s first digital will.
“It was pretty cool to have completed the entire will process online from start to finish,” says McCormick. “Serving in the line of duty presents a lot of unknowns, but having a will now gives me peace of mind to support my family and loved ones.”
McCormick was able to sign and notarise his Will in minutes; a process that would have otherwise taken him nearly an hour, on top of the travel time required to find a lawyer.
“Our mission is help everyone leave a lasting legacy. We achieved that major milestone by completing the first ever digital Will,” says Cody Barbo, Founder and CEO of Trust & Will. “By digitalising the entire process, people can proactively manage their estate and dynamically update it with major life events such as children, liquidity, inheritance, and more. As more states accept online Wills, Notarize will be the dream partner to deliver this experience to more of the country.”
Sixty per cent of Americans do not have a will today, and 70 per cent of parents have yet to take the necessary steps to protect their loved ones.
“There are not many bigger moments in life than estate planning,” says Pat Kinsel, Founder and CEO of Notarize. “Our opportunity is to empower people to access their Wills and Trusts online, and make updates on their terms, because life doesn’t happen when a bank or a lawyer has time in their schedule for you; it happens in a moment, sometimes unexpectedly, and requires technology to be there when you need it most.”
Notarize is a digital platform that provides a convenient, secure and scalable solution for life’s most important moments. All participants can review, sign, and collaborate online to process transactions in a completely paperless format, when and where it works for them. Nevada is the first state to allow electronic notaries to perform and witness digital wills.
