First, let’s describe what we mean by ‘Mentally Incapacitated’. For us, this implies the subscriber is no longer able to communicate or interact with people as s/he used to be. This can happen if someone is in a long-term coma, in a vegetative state, has dementia or Alzheimer’s. This list is not exhaustive. In other words, and in our context, the subscriber is still alive but not able to reply to our pulse checks due to her/his condition.
When you schedule a document for release, the subscriber has the option to tell us that if s/he wants to release the document to a recipient when Guardians confirm s/he became ‘mentally incompetent’, independently of the death. In this case, and as soon as Guardians inform us of this situation, we will release all documents to those planned Recipients.
