Including your online accounts in your Will
There’s no doubt that social media and how we operate online is having a big impact on our lives. Have you ever thought about what happens to your social media accounts or digital assets if you’re no longer here?
Many Australians now store an enormous amount of their creative output online. The way we are filing, storing, collecting and communicating is changing, and so is our Wills service.
The video below discusses your digital legacy and leaving your virtual property in your Will.
Slater and Gordon’s online and regular Will services will now include a special provision for social media accounts and virtual property, where people can briefly describe how they want these assets handled.
The innovation will make it easier for families to keep or shut down social media or email accounts, and handle online music libraries or photo collections. Make sure you don’t include your passwords.
