Leave a Digital Legacy

digital mediaPeople should leave clear instructions about what should happen to their social media, computer games and other online accounts after their death, according to the Law Society. Having a list of all your online accounts, such as email, banking, investments and social networking sites will make it easier for family members to piece together your digital legacy, adhere to your wishes and could save time and money. Not making your digital legacy clear could mean important or sentimental material – such as photographs on social networks – is never recovered. Digital assets can also include music, films, email accounts and computer game characters.

Elisabeth Pollard says “We are members of  The Law Society Wills & Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS) and their Protocol recommends completion and maintenance of a Personal Assets Log including digital assets. We encourage our clients to consider how those dealing with their estate will be able to access those assets.
