Do you want your family to have access to your online accounts when you die?

Have you ever wondered what happens to your Facebook, Twitter, or email account–or any online account for that matter–when you die? As this AP article explains, states are beginning to pass laws that grant family members access to their loved one’s online accounts at death. Is this what you would want? You may, so your family can obtain your sentimental photos, videos, emails, posts, etc. Or you may want no part of it – valuing privacy over access. The best option is to clearly clarify your intent in a “digital assets” provision in your will. If you do not have a will, or if it has been a while since you reviewed your will, feel free to call us at 425-822-1511.
