End of Life and Digital Estate Planning
As the digital world becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, it becomes even more important to record, manage and protect digital assets as part of your estate plan. Your digital world holds a considerable portion of the legacy you leave to friends, family members and the generations to follow, so don’t overlook the need to legally secure it. You are already in the 21st century; make sure your estate planning is too.
Without an updated list of your digital assets and account information, your executor, attorney and loved ones will face an immense number of hurdles and anxiety trying to find, access and share or delete that information. What’s more, there may be items you don’t want others to see or know about. With Account Guardian and other services, Entrustet provides options and easy-to-use tools that can be updated anytime to track your digital assets and select what gets shared and what gets deleted.
Entrustet’s Account Guardian is a free online service that allows you to securely list all of your digital assets, which are online accounts and files on your computer, and decide if you’d like them transferred or deleted permanently when you pass away. The Guardian lets you protect unlimited digital assets, and let’s you choose a Digital Executor, as well as up to 10 heirs for your online estate plan. The Guardian also lets you send your last wishes directly to your attorney, who can help build the assets into your will or trust.
