About the Book

In Case You Get Hit by a Bus, cowritten by Abby Schneiderman and Adam Seifer, founders of Everplans, the leading platform in digital life planning, along with editorial director, Gene Newman, is filled with pragmatic tactics and engaging visuals focused on tying up the loose ends of your home, money, health, and memories that often get overlooked but are hugely important in the event of an unexpected crisis.

Abby Schneiderman and Adam Seifer are founders of Everplans, the leading platform in digital life planning. Everplans and In Case You Get Hit by a Bus, were created to help people manage when they are unexpectedly faced with difficult personal and financial decisions on someone else’s behalf. As a leading life planning digital platform, Everplans has spent years educating people on how to get a handle on the unpleasant but inevitable decisions that just about everyone will need to make at some point. Breaking the tasks down into three levels, from the most urgent (granting access to passwords), to the technical (creating a manual for the systems in your home), to the nostalgic (assembling a living memory), this clear, digestible book is a reference tool that readers can turn to time and time again when navigating seemingly daunting circumstances.

Eliminating the confusion around concepts like “Powers of Attorney,” breaking down hyper-complicated estate planning practices, and presenting legal jargon in layperson’s terms, In Case You Get Hit by a Bus is a liberating and foolproof guide that encourages you to organize your life now. An organized life is far easier to live, and ultimately, you’ll be leaving behind a gift your family doesn’t even know they need.
