Until now, Alcor has accepted only highly-assured means of payment such as life insurance, trusts, or prepayment for cryopreservation minimums. We will accept, on a limited basis, alternative funding methods. Here is the proposal that was passed at the September 13, 2014 board meeting:
On an individual basis, Alcor will accept partial payment for cryopreservation from alternative funding methods such as real estate, 401(k) plans, and bequests at a 50% discount from net assets in order to allow for risk. These alternative payment methods may be used only up to a maximum of 50% of current cryopreservation minimums. Acceptance of alternative funding methods in any individual case is subject to review by Alcor and will be approved, if at all, only after checking for possible conflicting claims, after attempting to verify the current value of assets, and while putting in place regular checks on future value.
