|Our times have changed significantly with the age of computers, digital cameras (your pictures), and video recorders (your home videos). Let’s not forget the addition of the many internet services such as on-line Banking, facebook, eMail, and so on, that have brought many additional complexities to your table. Digital Life Estate Planning is all about having an effective information transfer plan for all of your important information in the event something happens to you. Answer this question: If you passed away at this very moment what would be the impact to your loved ones in regards to your digital world? Access to your banks, email accounts, and various other important services? Have you ever tried to gain access to someone else’s account? It is a nightmare and most end up just giving up due to the complexities. Really, in all honesty, its hard enough for us to keep up with our own “Digital World stuff” and how to gain access to such services or information… not to mention one of our family members trying to get access to our data. It can be almost impossible. Therefore, it is essential that each family member, young and old, take the time to identify what information is important to you, and to your family, and then have a well defined process in place that will allow your family access to all this information along with a clear transfer of knowledge when the situation merits. Thus the name, “Digital Life Estate Planning”. NotJustOvertime has developed a methodology for assisting you and your family in addressing these important issues. The information detailed out below are the primary areas that are addressed.
1. Password Management : How many passwords do you have? Are they secure? And who in you family has access to this information? Well if your like many, most people do not like the idea of giving out passwords that provide the detail access to this information when times are good. But, when things go wrong there are family members that ultimately need to know whats going on and how to get to it ALL! Given this situation, we have developed an approach for helping you identify, capture, and store this information in a very secure fashion. As well as, providing the necessary language that may need to be added to your Will and Living Will so that the information is available when needed.
4. Digital World Audio/Video Testimony Capture:You will also be provided with the necessary software and reading script for assisting you in capturing your Digital World environment in your own words. We will provide you with the script template forms where you essentially fill in the blanks on this document and record (audio and/or video) any details around your Digital World accounts that you believe will be important for your family to understand. You are also free to capture any other information you wish into these files, such as your regular Will, other messages, etc. We will add these files to our escrow account services along with your second key that will ultimately allow your family access to your password credentials.
