I haven’t written about digital assets in a while [view related posts] and I was reminded of the importance of putting digital assets into your estate plan this week in a conversation with a colleague.

After my experience of serving as the executor of three estates, it became clear to me how important it is to include digital assets into an estate plan. Including these assets and the information needed by heirs and executors to assemble and distribute digital assets in an estate plan can make a dramatic difference in the orderly and efficient administration of an estate.

Discuss your digital assets and the information that is needed for your heirs and executor with your estate planning professional when conducting estate planning.
