SoFi and Ladder Expand Partnership with Estate Planning for SoFi Members
Today, we are pleased to announce an expansion of our partnership with Ladder to include estate planning. SoFi members now have the ability to draft their will for free and can also access legal services and more complex estate-planning needs, including setting up a living trust and establishing power of attorney, for an additional cost.
In these uncertain times, SoFi continues to be committed to helping our members manage their financial needs for every stage of life. While it may seem like a stressful task, creating a will offers reassurances that your assets will be handled according to your wishes. With the addition of an estate planning member benefit, SoFi and Ladder hope to bring members confidence as they prepare for their family’s future.
The partnership with Ladder is powered by NetLaw, an award-winning online legal document platform, to provide a way for SoFi members to obtain estate planning documents which may be used to draft a will for free. SoFi members can access this benefit from the SoFi Protect life insurance page, which will direct them to create an account and follow a step-by-step guide to draft a will. SoFi members will also have the ability to store documents in a secure online document vault and make unlimited revisions to their will. Those members who wish to obtain legal services or have more complex estate-planning needs, like setting up a trust or power of attorney, will be able to assemble those services and documents as well, for an additional cost.
In addition to estate planning, SoFi members can also apply for life insurance coverage through Ladder that has competitive pricing, is quick to set up, and easy to understand. Members get access to flexible coverage that ranges from $100K to $8M and 10 to 30 years, with the option to adjust at any time.
