An Interview With Rudi Hoffman

Most people who sign up with a cryonics provider fund the cost of their future suspension using a life insurance policy. Rudi Hoffman is a long-standing member of the cryonics community and one of the few insurance agents to specialize in this type of policy: "The general feeling of the uninformed populace is that 'Cryonics is only for rich guys.' It is my passion, as well as my profession, to dispel this pernicious and potentially deadly lie. Cryonics is AFFORDABLE for most people who are in good health living in a developed country. This is because of the magical leverage of life insurance, in which a few dollars a day can create a fund of literally hundreds of thousands of dollars exactly when these funds are needed. ... Cryonics trusts exist to enable your funds to grow at a rate somewhat higher than taxes and inflation, and compound and grow. These funds are earmarked to both enable the cryonics resuscitation process, and enable you to have funds to provide you with enhanced options in the astounding future that you may be revived in. ... The bad news is that legitimate cryonics estate planning is not cheap. The better news is that some groundwork has been laid out by pioneers of this idea to make it more affordable than it used to be. And the actual funding of the cryonics trust can come from the leverage of life insurance."
