We actually encourage you to have hard copies in safe keeping. If you are holding the original copies of your Will, Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney or other estate document then you need to maintain that original and a safe deposit box is a good place to utilize.
All that said, our lives change on a regular basis and constantly going to the safe deposit box or distributing new physical copies to family members after each update can be a daunting task.
DocumentTrunk stays in the same location no matter where you go making updates quick and easy.
DocumentTrunk.com is built on a secure platform including double authentication for administrative support access. DocumentTrunk encrypts your personal information locally, and then uploads it to the cloud for safe keeping. *We do not store your credit card information.

The possibilities are endless. There are the obvious wills, trusts and estate plans. We can also store your life insurance documents, financial documents, passwords, real estate documents, medical information, birth/marriage/divorce certificates, video messages and letters to your loved ones and so much more.
DocumentTrunk’s patent pending software is the only one of its kind. Through a complex group of algorithms, our software searches the net daily for your death. If a match is found, our staff then makes a life status check by phone to confirm prior to reaching out to your recipients. In addition, specific recipients in your contact list are authorized by you to received documents such as medical power of attorneys, DNR instructions and other such documents prior to your death, but only with a confirmation that you have become incapacitated.
No. All documents are held in trust with DocumentTrunk until your death or incapacitation has been confirmed by a member of the DocumentTrunk team. Only the files you wish to be delivered, at the time you want them to be delivered and to the people you want to have them delivered to will be released.
The DocumentTrunk team members will deny any access to your files prior to a death or incapacitation confirmation. If a recipient does try to access files early, you will be notified immediately.
In the event that something were to happen to the ownership of DocumentTrunk a life insurance policy has been put in place and directives have been set in their trusts to fund 20 continual years of web hosting regardless of DocumentTrunk, the company’s, ability to continue payment. Additionally, if anything were to happen to DocumentTrunk as a company, a bond has been established to pay 20 years of web hosting. In short, your documents are in good (digital) hands.
