Service characteristics

Financial advisory service to beneficiaries (BFCS)

This service provides beneficiaries with professional and free financial advice from FinancialPoint, an independent company whose team of professionals is expert in handling a wide range of financial matters. Beneficiaries can access this 24/7 online service to request a financial plan. They simply enter their information on the FinancialPoint website and a finance professional will prepare a personalized financial plan based on the details provided. They can also call or email for quick answers to simple financial questions. Face-to-face meetings with financial professionals are also available upon request. These important financial services are available to beneficiaries for two years after the claim is settled.

As of April 1, 2021, BFCS is available for two years from the date the claim is paid. This includes 40 hours of personal counseling over the two years and access to the program’s online resources. Recipients who are already using the services can continue to access an additional 40 hours with a local advisor and use online resources until April 30, 2023. Additional financial planning resources may be made available to you.

Online Will Preparation Service

The online will preparation service makes it quick and easy for beneficiaries to prepare a will without a lawyer. After answering a series of simple questions, the beneficiary will receive a legal will, valid in all states, ready to print and sign.
