Since the sudden passing of my father, I’ve been thinking a lot about digital assets and what becomes of them. UK firm I Will Solicitors has produced an interesting infographic about this very topic. I’m sharing here in case others are wondering about the same thing. Turns about that our digital assets have significant value and that after a loved one passes it can often be difficult for their family to access this to protect private information and data.
Even though we are spending significantly more time using digital platforms for everything from banking through to personal administration and sensitive correspondence, this is an area that few people are thinking of accounting for in their estate planning. I hope this infographic helps people better understand what their digital assets are and how to manage them in 2020 and beyond (not the GREAT beyond, just the normal one).
