Preserving Money For Future Use

Post by TDK » Wed Nov 09, 2011 8:11 pm

This topic has been mentioned before.

Does anyone have any clear ideas or plans on how to set aside cash for future use
upon revival?

Back when I first got my life insurance, Rudi had me allocate some of my funding
to a "Lichtenstein Cryonics Trust". Which was supposedly a pool of money to be
safely invested, and available for people to access in the future, when revived.
But when I adjusted my policy recently, Rudi informed me that the trust was
no longer active or available.

So does anyone have something like a trust set up? Or is there any
way for Alcor to set up a sub-account in addition to the patient care fund?
That would be specifically for members to eventually use, not for running
the organization? As someone mentioned, it would suck to be revived,
and find out you have no applicable job skills, and are probably really out
of touch with current reality, and in addition to that, you are broke!

Sure, I would be happy to be alive, but it would also be nice to not have
to be overly concerned about financial stuff. Imagine if an ancient
Roman citizen were revived today. What would they do? They could
do some teaching of history, and be a bit of a novelty. But they would
not easily adapt to modern life or have any current job skills.

This has been one of my biggest concerns as well. It would definitely be horrifying to wake up and be in the poor-house! I started trying to brainstorm after reading this article: ... -franklin/

Let's head over to the Private Forum and talk about it.
