FAQ - My Affairs In Order Frequently Asked Questions
Who should purchase the My Affairs In Order USB Drive?
We believe everyone should get their affairs in order, not only for their own benefit, but for the benefit of loved ones. As we all know, life is unpredictable and bad things can happen to us at any age. Having our legal, financial and final arrangement wishes in order gives us peace of mind and will help our families in critical and stressful times. We are aware that when it comes to our own death planning, most of us prefer to be an ostrich and stick our heads in the sand. Everyone should consider purchasing this device, but those that will benefit the most by completing the My Affairs In Order Flash Drive are seniors, those with a serious illness, caretakers of the infirm and/or elderly, young people with children, individuals with no relatives and those planning on travel or deployment.
Where should I store the My Affairs In Order flash drive?
Since the flash drive contains confidential personal and financial information, it is imperative that it be stored in a secure place. The best place to store your planner is in a waterproof and fireproof home safe. If you don’t have access to a home safe, you may want to consider storing the device in a safety deposit box, with an attorney, or with a close family member or friend. Wherever you choose to store the device, be sure you know if your selected executor or family member is authorized and has all the necessary information in order to access the device when needed.
How long will the flash drive last?
Our supplier guarantees the flash drive will last at least ten years. However, it is possible the device will last much longer than the ten years. If you are concerned about the time limit, you have the option of printing out hard copies of each form for a back-up.
How can I retrieve my User Name and/or Password?
Due to the sensitive and confidential nature of the information, we designed the software so that User Names and Passwords cannot be retrieved if forgotten or lost. We would have no way to know if someone contacting us for Password retrieval was actually authorized to receive that information. We have included a “Reset Your User Account” button at the bottom of the Password Screen. It’s important to know that if you use this button, you will effectively be starting all over. All data will be erased if you use the Reset button. Store your User Name and Password in a safe place and/or give the information to a loved one. Remember also that as a back-up, each form can be printed out in a hard copy.
Can a husband and wife use the same device?
Even though there are several sections that contain shared documents or information for married or partnered couples, much of the information is distinctly personal. Therefore, we recommend that each member complete their own My Affairs In Order Flash Drive.
