In the first article of “Preserving Your Digital Legacy” I discussed developing a plan and taking inventory of your digital assets. I know it wasn’t a homework assignment, but have you started this journey? Maybe once we’re through the entire plan it will give you a better idea and the motivation to get started, if you haven’t already.
Do you have a plan of what will happen to your digital assets after you die? Traditionally, an individual’s estate plan (no matter how large or small) includes our wishes, and lists our physical items such as financial accounts and property. As a majority of individuals are now fully immersed into the digital age we need to consider what will happen to these digital assets and online accounts. Even if an individual is single or married with multiple grandchildren I’ll give some pointers on what you can do to preserve your digital legacy.
