Protecting Your Digital Assets
Many people conduct financial transactions online. These accounts may involve automatic fund transfers, which are password-protected. If you were to die suddenly, would your successor know how to access such accounts? This is crucial for your family and other beneficiaries as it protection of your tangible assets.
Digital assets may include issues regarding Facebook pages or LinkedIn pages, publishing rights, eBooks and information stored on computer hard drives or cloud drives. An asset that does not have value cannot go into a trust, but you can make sure that these assets are preserved and protected through proper inclusion and instructions in your estate planning documents.
