Estate planning mainly centers on planning for tangible assets, like property you own, investments, bank accounts, family heirlooms and other items of value. But, you may want to include provisions for your digital assets. That includes things like:
- Email accounts
- Social media accounts
- Online bank and investment accounts
- Photos or documents you've stored online
- A personal or business website you own
- Copyrights, patents and trademarks
- Digital currency
Some digital assets have financial value, while others have purely personal value.
If you have digital assets of value, your estate plan should outline how you want these assets to be handled if you pass away and who is responsible for taking care of them.
