Online accounts are property too
It’s easy to see how the internet has revolutionized the way we communicate and do business.
- Nearly 80 percent of Americans have a social media profile.1
- More than half of U.S. adults bank online.2
- Fewer than 10 percent of Americans have never sent an email.3
Because email accounts, social media accounts, websites, and other digital aspects of a person’s life are considered personal property, the internet is also changing how estate planning is done. If you’re not including digital property provisions in ALL of your estate planning documents, you should be.
