about being an Agent

Let’s start with a little about Memorialize Me.

No one wants to think about their own passing. But we do want to think about taking care of the loved ones we leave behind and how to ease the burden on them during this difficult time. That’s why we created these free tools. With so many decisions to be made, it can be a tremendous comfort to your heirs to have many of these decisions already made and important contacts and documents readily available.

What being an Agent is all about.

Being an Agent is an important responsibility. All the preparation that has been done in a Memorialize Me account, from writing & recording Messages to gathering and uploading important documents such as wills, deeds and financial information relies on the Agent to confirm passing and set everything in motion. The Agent will also be able finalize and publish the Memorial as well as access the Document Vault. An Agent is a trusted role and an integral part of the Memorialize Me process.

Where to go from here.

To accept the role of trusted Agent, all you have to do is click on the Become Agent button in the Agent Request email you were sent. That will take you to a special page where you can sign up. Since everything is secure and password protected, you will need to sign up and create your own password. This will register you as an Agent for the person who sent the request and also give you access to the tools for your own use. You are not required to use any of these to fulfill the role of Agent, but they are there and free of charge if you choose.

It only takes a few clicks to fulfill the Agent role.

When you login to your account, there will be a panel on your Dashboard listing anyone for which you are an Agent. From this panel you will be able to confirm the passing or resign as Agent. To set everything in motion, click confirm passing and Memorialize Me will take you through a short confirmation process. If you feel you are no longer able to perform the duties of Agent, you can click resign and the person will be notified of your resignation.
