Digital Assets & Social Media

With so much of our lives happening online it is important to remember digital assets need to be included in estate planning.  North Carolina has included a section for that in their Durable Power of Attorney statute.

Digital Assets & Social Media accounts can include, but are not limited to: online banking, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, online dating sites, online storage (ex. Google, icloud, shutterfly, etc.), blogs, online gaming, etc.

It is important to discuss these items with your estate planner when making a will and considering a durable power of attorney.
