If not adequately provided for, digital assets can present unique difficulties for loved ones when someone passes away. Because they are newer than traditional assets, digital assets are often overlooked in estate plans, leaving friends and family members unsure of the deceased person’s wishes. They can also become difficult or impossible to access if no one knows the login information for online accounts, and service providers might not grant access because of their privacy policies.
How Can I Provide for These Assets in My Estate Plan?
Follow these steps to ensure that your digital assets will be provided for without causing additional stress or confusion for loved ones.
