Most people think of their estate as consisting of real property, personal property and tangible property. However, an often forgotten aspect of the estate is digital assets. Digital assets include picture and video storage sites, email accounts, social networking sites, domain names, games and related sites, online sites, backup sites, and online banking accounts. Most individuals have numerous usernames, passwords, and security questions that are not easily available to estate administrators. Without being provided this information and the location of the information, your administrator may be burdened with dealing with significant hurdles or legal battles to gain access to such information.
