Leaving keys to digital assets

What are digital assets?

Any accounts that you open online, including email, social networking, photo-sharing, as well as websites and domain names you own.

Essentially, it means any account with a unique user name and password combination. However, online financial accounts, such as brokerage and banking, typically are considered "physical" assets that pass directly to your heirs.

To be prepared, give the following to a designated person:

*An inventory of all your websites and online accounts.

*A list of passwords, user names, answers to security questions and other log-in information.

*Expiration dates and/or renewal instructions for domain names.

*Instructions on how each account should be managed, saved or deleted.
