Your digital assets have a life of their own.
I frequently hear stories from family members about the challenges of dealing with a loved one’s:
- computer (no access code)
- social media accounts ongoing
- online bank accounts
- other digital assets (music, videos, email, pictures, etc.).
Include digital assets in your estate plan. Make things easier for those family members who have to pick up the pieces.
