Virtual Assets

One challenge of Estate Administration is locating assets.  While electronic media has made the search easier in some respects, it also made it more challenging in others.  What was the decedent’s password(s) and online account numbers?  Did he have an Ebay account for buying and selling?  What did she have listed on Craig’s List?  How about a Pay-Pal account?  Did he run an on-line business?  Did she post anything embarrassing or defamatory on Facebook?  You need to maintain a hard copy (and update it as needed) of information needed by a fiduciary to access your assets in the Cloud.
