Unfortunately, there may be a time when you come across the profile of a colleague, classmate, or loved one who has passed away. If this happens, we can close that person's account and remove their profile on your behalf.

To start this process, please answer some questions about the person who has passed away. The form can be completed and signed electronically via DocuSign here:


We'll need to know the member's name, the company they worked at most recently, your relationship to them, and get a link to their profile. It's also very helpful if you can provide us with the member's email address so we can find and verify their account.

After you fill out this form, it will be automatically sent to us for review and we'll be in touch.
