What is a digital estate plan?
All of us store a growing wealth of information online, and our online presence often outlives us. From financial accounts to social media profiles, email to photos, and online subscriptions, we are left wondering, “what happens to all of this when I die?”

By not including your online life in your estate plan or will can leave your family with a time-consuming, difficult burden to navigate.With TrustedHeir, we guide you through the process of organizing and planning for your digital life and make sure that your estate plan is comprehensive, complete and accessible to the people you trust.
