The partnership offers all new and existing C&J Financial clients, at no cost, the GoodTrust Premium Plan for 3 months with a free will-maker-tool and VIP service to take care of accounts like Facebook and LinkedIn after someone passes away.

GoodTrust also makes it possible for anyone to secure their online life with a digital vault. Users can also create their will for free in less than 15 minutes and share stories and memories like animated photos or Future Messages.  

“We are thrilled to be partnering with GoodTrust to help our clients take care of this important need in today’s connected world by ensuring their digital legacy,” said Jamie Meredith, Executive Vice President, C&J Financial.

Funeral homes will be able to activate this offer for their families starting on Oct. 20 at the 2021 National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) International Convention and Expo in Nashville, TN.
