Hello.

 

I have been thinking for years now about the option of cryonics.

 

I'm still relatively young, but my financial situation is far from being what I hoped years ago it would be in my age, and due to factors that accord in my life is very likely to persist for years.

 

What am I to do in order achieve cryonics if I intend to have it in the future, other than save enough money for it? If anyone has credible information about the most affordable costs of cryonics today, by Alcor or another serious and operating cryonics group- I would appreciate if they write. (as far as I read in the past, this doesn't seem to move to much cheaper costs over the recent years)

 

Also, I currently live in a country that does not have an operating cryonics organization. Is the only option today for cryonics (with reasonable 'preservation' of the body as is achievable today) is to be present in a country that does, and close enough to the cryonics facility at the time of death?

 

Hope it's the correct place for this topic and my questions clear enough. Cryonics is a wonderful idea, even if only "the second worst option".

cryonics.org is the most affordable option. Get life insurance ASAP. Most people pay for cryonics with life insurance.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I was aware of the existence of life insurance for cryonics in the past, but up to this moment I'm not 100% sure I understand its meaning. Is that literally means- you contact one of the insurance companies and determine a monthly cost, or other period cost, you pay for the rest of your life and when you pass away your body undergoes cryonics?  (or at least for a given period of time, if you pass away during it. And after it you would need to renew the insurance agreement)

 

If it is the general concept of cryonics life insurance, then it might be the most realistic option for me right now.

You buy life insurance, (sooner the better), then when you die the insurance policy pays for the cryonics procedure.

Rather than just life insurance, it may be beneficial to take out an endowment policy  that is coupled with a (term) life insurance.   

 

Ask your cryonics provider about local coordinators & volunteers they have worked with in your country and set some money aside for extra costs involved in standby, suspension and transport.
