“I am very honored and excited to be chosen to join the already amazing, innovative, and intelligent team at Alcor Life Extension Foundation. My passion for nursing began with a passion for human life, and that has helped me lead a very healthy nursing career where patient advocacy was at the forefront of every single decision. I am very pleased to be (back) at Alcor, especially in a role that allows me to interact with our wonderful members and assist them in their journey with Cryonics. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to learn more about who I am and what my goals are as the newest member of your Alcor team.” -Shelby Custer, BSN, RN

Changes to Membership Billing

Beginning October 2022 invoices will be emailed through NetSuite, our new accounting system. We are very excited about the automation this new software will bring to the accounting process.

The image below is what your new invoice will look like and how it should show up in your inbox if you are not signed up for automatic payment. 

If you are signed up for autopay, your card on file will be charged when the invoice is sent at the beginning of the month.
  • At the bottom of the invoice there is a "Click Here to Pay Now" link to securely pay via electronic check or credit card.
  • Member can pay more than the invoice amount, if a previous balance; or member can pay less than the invoice amount.
  • The terms are "Net 30" with payment due within 30 days from the invoice date.
The following are examples of an invoice and payment receipt that will be generated with the new accounting system.
