Our Gold plan allows you produce up to 40 emails and 20 letters.
- 100 Emails
- 20 Letters

- Upload & Save Documents
You can type up to 100 emails which include premium design Birthday & Christmas cards and cards for other special occasions.
Then just set a specific date or time for your emails to be delivered after you have passed away to your family/friends, which can be up to 25 years after you have passed away.
You can type and upload 20 letters or post to us 20 hand written letters to be posted to your choosen recipient, the recipient will need to pay the postage at the time of delivery in the future for real letters or they can have a scanned copy for free.
You can choose one complimentary gift from our site to be posted to your choosen recipient or you can purchase one of your own. You can also post a gift to us for us to store and send on to your recipient, you will need to post the parcel to our UK office and the recipient would need to pay the postage to receive the item at the whatever the going rate is for postage in the year that it is sent.
You can upload and store important documents that you may wish to pass on to your family after your death, these could be say certificates that you have won or documents that you have collected over time that are pertinent to your family.
You can leave a message for as soon as you pass away which maybe things like, what funeral you would prefer, who you would like to have what and perhaps more info than you would put in your will, although your will by law would take preference if there is any confict of interest. You can also leave a short note on your passing and your first full message would go out in a minimum of 1 year after your passing.
You can cancel and resubscribe at anytime and your emails will still be stored, however if you pass away when your account is not active they will not be delivered free of charge and the recipient will have to pay a fee to receive them. The fee will depend on inflation and obviously would increase year on year, currently the fee is £5 per email due to the necessary checks and work that we have to do to verify the recipient and £10 per letter.
With this plan you can purchase extra credits to enable you to send more emails or letters if you so wish
For posting letters, the recipient will need to pay whatever the going rate is for postage in the year that it is sent or they can choose to have a scanned copy sent for free to recieve a letter you have choosen to send by post. they will be notified by email of options prior to any delivery.
You can also write a hand written letter and send this to us at your expense and the same applies that the recipient will need to pay the postage at the time or have a free scanned copy.
If you have added extra funds to your account to pay for any postage costs then providing there is enough to cover costs there would be no charge or the recipient would need to make up any shortfall. Letters can be collected from our office for no charge.
The Gold Plan also allows you to send into us a gift that we can store and forward onto your loved ones in the future, if you require more than one you do have options to purchase credits to enable you to send more gifts. Do take note, that in the interest of security all gifts that you send to us, will be opened and repackaged and the recipient will also need to Identify themselves to us first in order to receive the gifts. You could also choose for your executor to receive the gift and they can then pass it on to the relevant person.
Gifts can be collected for no charge, however if they are to be posted then you would pay the charge to send the parcel to us, then unless you have topped up your account with exra funds to cover postage costs the recipient would need to pay the going rate for postage in the year that it is sent. All parcels will initially need to be sent to our UK office for verification ( see terms and conditions about parcels for more info).
It is always difficult with postage as you could be sending something now that may not be sent for 50 years from now, so it is impossible to predict what postage prices will be then, this is why we allow you to add funds to your account to cover any postage costs and over the years if you are still here you can top up more if required.
If you have purchased a gift from the ALF website then delivery charges are included in the price.
You can upload and securly store documents that you may wish to pass on to family after your death, this could be a copy of your will, birth certifiicates or copies of other documents that could be relative and important for your family history.
Why not upload a family tree as you know it for your Grandchildren in the future
You can also select and purchase something from our store range of gifts for items such as flowers, Jewellery, Champagne, Wines & Chocolates, even a Rolex if you wish....
You choose when your emails are delivered after you have passed away, so you may choose to send them at Birthdays, Christmas or an Anniversary or at 1,5,10,15,25 yearly intervals.
You can also pay to upgrade your plan at anytime so you can send actual posted letters and gift's, or you can stay with your plan and just pay a small extra dividend to have some emails converted to posted letters.
It is important however that you invite your family and friends to join as then we can connect you and it makes it easier for us to trace them if something sudden or tragic happens. You will also need to nominate an executor or two, to manage your account if the event of your death so that you can be assured that all your messages get through to the right people at the right time.
With a selection of packages available you can choose what you think is best for you maybe dependent on your age and the amount of family and friends that you have and also your own current circumstances.
Simply select the package you would prefer and start leaving those all important messages for your loved ones so your still in their thoughts for many years to come and putting a smile on their face.
