For all of us, it has been a difficult time. But for teachers, it has been particularly difficult. This spring, when the pandemic kept them away from their students, they pushed through by learning a whole new way of teaching. During the summer, they navigated the uncertainty surrounding the highly controversial topic of whether students should return to class at the beginning of the school year. And now that autumn is here, many of them are juggling online with classroom teachers, sometimes both at the same time. And they do so with great personal risk – many teachers are at risk, and even the best security measures can not completely prevent the risk of getting coronavirus or spreading them.
In other words, they are very much as heroic as the frontline workers who have bravely risked their health to help others. That's why our partners at Trust & Will now offer free testing services to teachers. It's a way of saying thank you to the hard working teachers who are there for our children.

The service offered for free to teachers is the same as one of the options Plus members can choose from – test-based property planning, where you can create a legally binding will online in just 15 minutes.
Teachers who sign up for Trust & Will receive a will, either for themselves or for themselves and their partner, along with a series of other important documents. As Trust & Will's Marketing Manager Katie Fellenz explains: “It is a comprehensive property plan. The will states who you want to leave your assets to, who you want to be the guardian of your children – even for your pets. There are also important healthcare documents such as HIPAA authorization, which give permission to share your sensitive healthcare information with the person you appoint; power of attorney and financial power of attorney; and your will to live, which is basically your medical desires at the end of life.
Taking care of these long-term financial planning needs, such as getting a will or even getting life insurance, may seem impossible to deal with in the midst of the stress of autumn 2020 – especially for teachers who are already dealing with a lot of hanging children on a Zoom in and then work through the night to review students' tablet data. This is what makes Trust & Will's initiative so relevant for all types of teachers.
The Trust & Will service takes care of the most planned end of life at once. Emotionally, it is a great weight from a person's shoulders, which is why Trust & Will wanted to offer it for free to teachers. “When the pandemic was at its height in March and April, we had lots of healthcare professionals, who put their lives on the line, came to our website and asked about test options, so we just decided to offer our service to them for free to relieve some of their stress, says Fellenz. “As the school has approached, teachers have also had a similar concern, so we hope to alleviate some of it. This is our way of saying, & # 39; Thank you for what you do, we know you take care of our children, try to keep them safe and you have this extra stress, so we wanted to make this a small thing you have to do. worry about. & # 39; ”
Interested, or do you know a teacher who can be? Here's how it works: Visit this page on the Trust & Will website, where you can easily enter your details and then continue to make a will like any other customer (ie quickly and painlessly) and free of charge. "Trust & Will will offer property planning for free to teachers at the end of the year, then it will be discounted," says Fellenz. So if you are a teacher who has put out this particular lesson, this is a good time to get it done.
