  1. Digital Estate

    Over the past couple of years digital assets and online presence have become part of my estate planning process.

    What I have found is a lot of clients, despite their online profiles accounts and emails being a large part of their life, people are not thinking about this as part of their estate plan.

    Another thing to think about is a lot of two-way authentication will be sent to emails on record and your family will have to be able to access them in order to confirm their identities in the event of your death. Also even though someone dies it doesn’t mean that they’re online identity can’t be stolen and then of course used in ways that you did not intend for it to be used.

    I think online accounts and online/digital assets should be a consideration in every estate plan moving forward and will likely become more and more important as we continue to integrate technology into all aspects of our lives!
