Timeshifter partners with life insurance company Haven Life to offer policyholders jet lag solution

New York (JUNE 27, 2019) — Timeshifter® - The Jet Lag App® — today announced a new partnership with online life insurance agency Haven Life, which is owned by MassMutual. Haven Life will offer Timeshifter subscriptions to Haven Life Plus policyholders and employees at no cost.

Whether Haven Life policyholders or employees travel for business or go on vacation, the Timeshifter jet lag app can help them optimize their performance, enjoyment, and health when traveling.

Owned by one of the largest life insurers in the US, Haven Life is making it easier to buy affordable term life insurance online, so of course we are thrilled and honored to partner with them to solve jet lag, something that affects many of their policyholders and employees every year. Whether Haven Life policyholders or employees are traveling for business or going on vacation, the Timeshifter jet lag app can help them optimize their performance, enjoyment, and health when traveling.
— Mickey Beyer-Clausen, Timeshifter Co-founder & CEO

Timeshifter, winner of the National Sleep Foundation’s 2019 SleepTech® Award for ‘Best App’, was developed with Harvard Medical School Associate Professor Steven Lockley, Ph.D., based on the latest research in sleep and circadian neuroscience. Dr. Lockley is a world- renowned expert in circadian rhythms, sleep, and jet lag, and works with clients such as NASA Astronauts and Formula 1 drivers. With Timeshifter, travelers can create their own personalized jet lag plans based on their sleep pattern, chronotype, itinerary, and optional preferences such as pre-travel adjustment or the use of melatonin for even faster adaptation. Timeshifter’s investors include retired NASA Astronaut Michael López-Alegría and Air Canada Chairman Vagn Sørensen.

Driven by customer demand, Timeshifter is joining a range of other benefits Haven Life offer to its policyholders and employees, including access to fitness platform Aaptiv, online will provider Trust & Will, digital safe deposit box LifeSite, and MinuteClinic health services inside CVS and Target stores.

Our aim with Haven Life Plus is to forge a simpler, more rewarding path for engaging life insurance customers beyond the point of purchase. The primary purpose of life insurance will always be to protect your loved ones in case you die, but it can also be something that makes your life easier while you’re living.
— Yaron Ben-Zvi, Co-founder and CEO of Haven Life
Jet lag comes with significant financial and personal consequences. From short term risks like poor alertness and concentration to long term effects such as a greater risk for disease. Timeshifter is adding value to both Haven Life and their policyholders and employees. No one wants a sleepy driver behind the wheel of a rental car, nor do travelers want to be fatigued at an important business meeting or miss out on the first day of their vacation.
— Steven W. Lockley, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School

Neither Haven Life nor its parent company MassMutual will access personally identifiable data about customers who use Timeshifter.
