Webinar: Estate planning and digital assets

So much of our lives are online now—finances, banking, investing, and accounting. Our entertainment is online—Netflix, gaming accounts, our music. Even our social lives are online.

You probably deal with digital assets on a daily basis. But what’s your plan for that digital “stuff” after you’re gone? Can you simply hand over a document with your passwords, or is it more complicated than that? (Spoiler alert: It’s more complex.)

Protect My Plans, a service that manages the transition or retirement of your digital assets after your death, has partnered with GYST to offer a webinar on exactly this topic.
