The average adult has more than 28 online accounts and passcodes to manage. Most of us keep this in our head, on our mobile phone, under the keyboard … which does not make it a fool-proof system for you to manage. What many of us don’t know is what would happen to our online accounts and assets if we were incapacitated as well as when we pass away. Even those with estate plans are surprised to learn of the limitations.
As the primary adult caregiver for my parents, my Dad helped me set up online access to several of their accounts so I could help them. It made my job managing their money and paying bills infinitely easier. As a backup, I created a copy of the list for my siblings. I have also shared the location of my list with my loved ones where they can find it should they ever need to step in and act on my behalf.
My goal this year is to help 250,000 individuals take at least one step toward getting their information more organized. To do that, I’m giving away a free excerpt from MemoryBanc: Your Workbook for Organizing Life, which is available from a variety of online and retail bookstores.
