For Families
Insurance provides financial peace of mind; we complement that with full-circle administrative and emotional support.
Everyone goes through loss in their own way. Our support is tailored to each family’s specific situation.
We meet families where they are, empowering them with tools and knowledge without pressure or judgment.
We take tedious and difficult tasks off the family’s hands so they can spend time on what is most important.
Always there
Families can access all the features whenever they need, on their own schedule, along with 24/7 real-time support.
Empathy has a really good app. It is guiding the beneficiary, managing both the emotion and the logistical sort of aspects of loss. Focusing on the beneficiaries is an important part of delivering our value proposition.

Finding a way to cope with sleepless nights
Joseph, 62, grieving his wife
All day I’m OK. It’s the nights that get you. When it’s 3 a.m., 4 a.m., I feel like the only person in the world. Watching TV doesn’t help. I can’t pay attention—all I can think about is my wife, and the big empty bed. I started listening to audio episodes on the Empathy app, to hear a friendly voice and not have the pressure to talk. Right away, I feel less alone. I’ve learned a lot about grief—and I share the episodes with my daughters. We’ve also been using the family collaboration features in the app, so they can help me with all the decisions we need to make about my wife’s belongings and accounts. But it’s nice to have something positive to share with them, too.
