Estate Planning in the Digital Age

Protection When Life Is Lived Online

Most of us are living life online. We manage bank accounts, read the news, browse social media and shop for, well, just about everything.

With all those accounts come oodles of usernames, PINs and passwords. They can be tough to remember and even tougher to change!

It isn’t easy for us to keep track of our own online accounts, so imagine how difficult it would be for a loved one to access them in case of an emergency. These accounts make up your “digital estate,” and they’re a critical part of your overall estate plan.

3 Steps to Securing Your Digital Estate

In three steps, you can ensure your digital estate is protected and your loved ones know how to access your information in case of an emergency.

  1. Create a list of your digital assets and passwords. Using an online management program with encryption or storing them on a flash drive are good options for keeping your information secure.
  2. Find a safe place to store this list. Your will could become public record when filed, so don't include it on your list. Instead, keep it in a location (such as a fireproof lock box in your home), that is accessible by your executor or a trusted loved one.
  3. Make a plan. Determine what you want to happen with each account and outline the details with your executor or loved one. State laws differ when it comes to handling digital estates, so an estate planning attorney may be of help in this step.
