Traditionally, an estate plan comprises of a trust, wills, power of attorneys, and healthcare directives. But nowadays, with our increased reliance on our electronic assets, it is more and more important to ensure that your loved ones have access to your electronic assets in the event of your incapacity or death.
Access to such information may include:
Another option, in lieu of providing your login information to these various accounts, you may wish to consider using a company to organize and handle your digital assets, which allows you to leave directives for the handling of such accounts. Many of these companies do not keep your passwords, but at least will have information about which accounts exist, along with your intended distribution of those assets.
Of course, in either option, it is very important to ensure you maintain these records in a safe place and that only individuals that you trust have access to this information.
