What kind of information can I upload to your portal?
Insurance policies and financial products are often purchased during life changing moments such as a marriage, the birth of a child, the purchase of real estate or the addition of other assets worth protecting. InsureYouKnow.org stores all of your meaningful and critical information such as life and health insurance policies, banking and retirement account information, current prescription drug use and pertinent medical information.

Our users can also upload all of their important legal and contractual Documents and much more.
What kind of information do you collect?
We collect the minimal information about each account like your name and the last 4 digits of most accounts. Think of it as if you lost your wallet or purse, what information would you need to cancel credit cards, to secure bank accounts, etc. For example, you would most likely need the last 4 numbers of the credit card and the credit card provider’s phone number to begin securing your credit cards.
How does it work?
You upload the information you would like your family members, caretakers or trusted partners to know onto our encrypted and password protected Amazon Web Hosted Site.
