Frequently Asked Questions
Why Legacy Concierge?
Individuals need a service to locate and protect electronic records of any person after they pass. If we do not secure electronic records and their related digital assets, they can become available to many individuals who are ready to steal them. Don’t let the value of anyone’s estate decrease due to identity or other theft.
How does Legacy Concierge work?
First a person organizes their data and documents, digital assets and electronic records and places information about those assets in a secure location in the cloud. That location is called an Electronic Vault.
After death of an individual, their authorized person uses the content of their Electronic Vault to notify companies, agencies, custodians, banks, brokerages, insurance companies and other businesses that they records they have on file belong to a deceased person. This notification process is activated and called Resolution.
During resolution, the holder is the records is requested to lock, freeze, delete, memorialize, or otherwise prevent access to and processing with those records as of the date of death.

How does payment work?
Individual users provide PayPal, debit or credit card information to be used for billing purposes. Under a corporate license for multiple Electronic Vaults, each user will be provided a special code to enter upon logon and sent activation credentials. They will not be required to enter payment information.
How do I set up an Electronic Vault?
Issue payment to build a vault and a unique link will be sent to you to create your vault. You will create a username (email address) and password and begin logging information into your vault.
What happens to my vault when I die?
