"Hey, I always wondered what would happen to my loan and its interest if I went into a coma. Would I wake up to a massive amount of repayment that I'd have to declare bankruptcy?

But now I have all the details my family would need to deal with my finances. So consider this an appreciation support ticket!"

"When our mother died unexpectedly last year, we ended up in a 6-month court battle to get her bank accounts in order. So when I heard about Backup Diary, I immediately signed up and had my husband do the same."
