When it comes to transferring your wealth down the generations, careful planning is key. In addition to making plans for passing on your property and other assets, it is becoming ever more vital to make plans for your digital assets.
These days, we are living our lives increasingly online – and this means that many of us have accumulated a great deal of digital assets, as well as traditional physical possessions, during our lifetimes.
What if your family was unable to access sentimentally valuable photos and videos held on your computer or social media accounts because they didn’t know your password? Or if your executor was hindered in their duties to distribute your wealth according to your wishes because they had no access to your online banking or cryptocurrency accounts?
Arranging your digital legacy
At Attwaters Jameson Hill, our Wills & Probate specialists are on hand to help you transfer your digital assets smoothly to your beneficiaries. We can help you identify the digital assets you possess and assist you in making plans for their distribution, including:
- Online bank accounts
- PayPal and cryptocurrency accounts
- Social media profiles
- Photos, videos and other files
- iTunes and/or Spotify accounts
- Domain names you own
- Government accounts (e.g. HMRC)
…and any other digital assets you may have.
This will leave your family free to make the arrangements set out in your Will, giving you the peace of mind of knowing your wishes will be adhered to.
