Physical assets are hard enough to track down i.e. lost will, real estate deeds, life insurance policy so why must the estate planning community care about digital assets? There isn’t even agreement on calling them digital assets vs. content or the more simply; online accounts . But if there is one thing that the estate planning community expects for a job well done it’s a thorough accounting of a client’s assets in any form so as to prevent a re-file or redistribution. So whether the digital asset has purely emotional or actual intrinsic value, the documentation of its location, how an agent, executor or trustee gains access to it and then helping ensure control over it is becoming a necessary part of most estate plans.
