Important Information to Share with Your Executor

As the use of the internet has become ubiquitous in our present age, people tend to accumulate a number of online accounts which require usernames and passwords to access. Typically, individuals keep this information to themselves to protect their personal and financial information. However, if you are preparing your will, you might consider how you want the different accounts you possess to be treated in the event of your demise and how you want your executor to gain access to online accounts.

When it comes to preparing a will, there are many important factors to consider and issues to be handled. Fortunately, a Houston estate planning attorney of Garg & Associates, P.C., can help you manage these affairs and plan your will. Contact our offices today at 800-242-2151 to discuss your needs and concerns with our qualified legal team.

Passwords to Keep on File

The best way to ensure that your passwords and usernames for online accounts are available to your executor is to make a complete list and take steps to make sure the executor will have access to it upon your passing. The list can include information for any accounts you currently have, including:

  • Computer access
  • Social networking sites
  • Email accounts
  • Blogs
  • Online subscriptions
  • Online photo storage sites

Because your will becomes public record upon your passing, you should not include password information in the will. It is best to plan another way for your executor to have access to your list of information upon your death.
