Trustworthy Vs Everplans: What You Should Know

Kristin Hoppe


Managing all your family's information is a huge task. For instance, a family may need secure access to information like:

  • Insurance ID cards at an optometrist’s appointment

  • Advance directives during a medical event

  • Expiration dates for your fire extinguisher 

That's why companies like Trustworthy and Everplans have created online platforms that make the process easier and more seamless. With so many different options out there, it's important to look at the advantages and disadvantages of different platforms before spending time and money on a solution for your family.

In this post, we'll go over a side-by-side comparison of Trustworthy and Everplans, including for whom these plans are best suited.

Company Overviews

Trustworthy is the Family Operating System® that helps you organize, optimize, and protect your important family information. Customizable templates and categories make organization easy. Intelligent reminders help you save on fees, and Trustworthy’s one-on-one Experts service provides support and onboarding.

Everplans helps you organize, store, and securely share important information such as legal and insurance documents. They offer step-by-step guidance, secure storage, and sharing options for loved ones and advisors. 

While both companies have a similar mission and overlap in some of their product offerings, each has some key distinctions. 

Everplans: Tailored for more basic service

Pricing: $75

Key differentiating features: End of life planning category, resource library

Like Trustworthy, Everplans also has encrypted, bank-level security, two-factor authentication, and an online platform to organize and manage family information.

End of Life Planning

Everplans includes a section focused on end-of-life planning that includes a unique tab for funeral preferences, after-death instructions, obituaries, and memorialization.  


For individuals who open new accounts, Everplans provides a free book called In Case You Get Hit by a Bus, which provides tactical advice on organizing and planning your life's details. Their resources and guides also make it easy to plan in categories like legal, financial, and medical.

Customer Support

Everplans offers limited customer support for all inquiries, with only email as an option instead of phone and text support. Similarly, Everplans only provides self-guided onboarding and organization instead of expert onboarding and done-for-you support. 


Everplan’s 5GB storage capacity is sufficient for storing standard documents. However, if you want to store photos and videos, it is limited. In context, 5GB is equivalent to approximately 2500 photos, which is not adequate for long-term or multi-member household use. 


Overall, Everplans could be a good fit for individuals who would like to pay less and don't mind slimmed-down features and minimal customer support. 

Trustworthy: A comprehensive solution with high-touch customer support

Pricing: $120-$480/year

Key differentiating features: advanced support, expert team, automated reminders, secure links

Many customers enjoy using Trustworthy for its on-the-go convenience — if you forget a medical ID card, for example, you can pull it up on the Trustworthy app or share it with secure links. 

Secure links offer view-only access to a specific file from your Trustworthy account. You can share secure links with any individual and customize how long they will have access to your information, whether it be an hour, day, week, or month. You will receive notifications when your files have been viewed or the link has expired and you can revoke access to it at any time. 

The convenience of accessing and sharing information in Trustworthy is helpful for unexpected situations where others need immediate access to specific documents. Instead of sending your files through unsecured channels like messages and emails, secure links significantly reduce the risk of non-authorized users getting access to your information.

It is also easy to add information to Trustworthy. Trustworthy’s intelligent mobile document scanner captures features and auto-fills information for you, helping make the process go smoothly. Trustworthy even sets automated reminders to renew your important documents and change your passwords so you don’t forget. 

Premium customer support

The Trustworthy Gold Plan is also differentiated by its optional expert onboarding service and phone support (in addition to email support). Members of the Platinum Plan also have access to text support and an enhanced 75 GB vault space.

Access to expert service can help your family pick out specific insurance plans (like life insurance or homeowners insurance) or find the right lawyer. It helps cut out some of the legwork and provides solutions — instead of more tasks for you to complete on your own.


All plans in the Trustworthy Family Operating System® include bank-level security with 256-bit encryption. Other features like two-factor authentication, hardware keys, and biometric authentication all act as a step up for your family’s information security. Trustworthy meets or exceeds industry security standards. 

For example, unlike Everplans, Trustworthy uses data tokenization to protect users’ data from cyberattacks. Tokenization stores users’ sensitive information on a separate server and replaces your private information with tokens with no meaning or value. In addition, Trustworthy is SOC2-certified and GDPR- and HIPAA-compliant.

First responders

Unlike its competitors, Trustworthy has a special plan for first responders who serve their communities. Firefighters, police, paramedics, doctors, nurses, military members, coast guard personnel and reservists, veterans, and security guards all benefit from a 50% discount on the Gold Plan to honor their service.


Trustworthy may be a good fit for you if you want to prioritize convenience,  accessibility, and security. Trustworthy’s premium expert service is also a step above the rest, giving you one-on-one support by phone, email, or even SMS. Overall, Trustworthy is a step up for your family’s information security and digital asset management, and a major upgrade from desktop-only accessibility.
