Let’s say you and your spouse designated each other as your life insurance beneficiaries. Shouldn’t your policies “know” each other?
Fabric believes that too many financial products don’t talk to each other enough. That can cause a whole host of problems. Namely, if someone were to pass away, his or her loved ones might not know whether he or she had a life insurance policy, or who was named as the beneficiary.
According to Consumer Reports, there’s more than $1 billion in unclaimed life insurance benefits!
We’ve always said that it’s important to streamline your online life so your heirs know where to find everything.
That’s why Fabric released a featured called Trusted Contacts, which you grant access to your beneficiary so that person can see your up-to-date policy information on Fabric and access customer support if the need arises.
When you modify details such as your coverage amount, your changes will be visible to the beneficiary you named as your Trusted Contact, so you can rest assured that your beneficiary will have access to the information he or she needs, if something were to happen to you.
“The number of unclaimed life insurance policies should be zero,” says Adam Erlebacher, Co-Founder and CEO of Fabric, “otherwise the product is just not doing its job. Fabric helps make sure that families and parents always have peace of mind, with the information they need at their fingertips."

Blame participation trophies or the fact that many millennials entered the job market around the time the Great Recession hit, but millennials sometimes have a hard time shaking a reputation for being stuck in extended adolescence. The truth is, the generation that coined “adulting” as a verb has been grown up for a while now. Most millennials have already seen our 10-year college reunion come and go, or we may face the shock of hearing we’re experiencing a “geriatric” pregnancy (at 35, really?). As your life grows to include more responsibilities and loved ones who depend on you, it’s time to consider whether life insurance might be the right next step.
Top signs of “adulting” include saving money, doing taxes, and signing up for life insurance, according to Fabric’s new research. Read on for more surprising insights.
