Personal Representative

Our experience with Heidi Webb was fantastic. She explained all that was needed to build our estate planning. The customer service that was provided was well above excellent. We requested our estate plan be available to us in a short period of time. This was well met and gave us a great sense of gratitude. We can now go on with doing what we do and not have to worry about our estate, knowing that all our documents are now in order for our family.

I have worked with Heidi on several issues and have been impressed by her dedication, integrity, plain English explanations, and thoroughness. I highly recommend her based on her high professional standards and she also is a kind woman with a beautiful heart.

Your Digital Afterlife

digital assets

As we stress pretty often, Estate Planning is a part of adulting that everyone should take some time to address. While we are most familiar with the ins and outs of what this basic process looks like — deciding who and what and when should happen to your assets but have you ever thought about the importance of how your digital life lives on?

In 2019, many of our life’s moments are not preserved physically as our parents and grandparents were. With social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, and various photo archives –you may want to designate someone to be responsible for them or at the very least have access to them, in the same way, you would your other important documents.

Below are some thoughts about how to get started on getting your digital estate in order and specific information about how your Facebook account should be set up and handled.

Take Digital Inventory

Your first step is to decide which digital assets you want your heirs to be able to access, including your social media accounts and email. Make out a list of your accounts, and if you decide to include your usernames and passwords, then be sure to store them in a secure location and make sure that the information is always current if it changed. An estate-planning attorney can help you update your will to reflect your intentions for your digital estate.

 Designate a Facebook Legacy Contact

Facebook now gives you an opportunity to choose a legacy contact, someone that can manage your social media account if you should pass away. The legacy contact can write a pinned post for your profile as a farewell message or as a way to let your friends know the details of a memorial service. A legacy contact is someone you choose to look after your account if it’s memorialized.  

Like your physical affairs, a little preparation ahead of time can make managing your digital assets a lot easier for your heirs.
