Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Digital Will?

A will is no longer just for distributing your worldly possessions. With so much of life being handled online, it’s likely you have digital assets that need to be addressed in your estate plan. From your Paypal account to your music library, this digital footprint can live on for years, even decades after you pass away.

A digital will may be just what you need to protect your privacy rights and ensure your property is properly transferred. It doesn’t need to be a legal document like your official will. A digital will can simply be a list of all your digital property, where it’s stored, and the usernames and passwords associated with each account.

With DigitalWill.com, our members can also share their end-of-life wishes and instructions for their loved ones. From writing messages to your loved ones to be delivered after you pass to sharing your funeral plan requests, it can all be captured with your digital will.

Why Do I Need A Digital Will?

Much of our lives are lived online. From social media accounts to cloud storage to online banking, we all have a tremendous amount of data and information stored digitally. When we die, there isn’t really a “one-size-fits-all” way for our descendants to access this important information, until now.

DigitalWill.com gives you the control, flexibility and peace of mind to store, update, and manage your digital assets. When you pass away, this information is then distributed to the beneficiaries of your digital estate. It is a seamless and simple process.

Is a Digital Will the Same As A Legal Will?

No. Your legal will handles the distribution of your assets. If you own a house, cars, and other physical assets, these would be covered in your legal will. However, your estate plan is not complete if you do not have a digital will.

Because we all have a large digital footprint, many things can be lost once we pass on. Photos stored in cloud accounts, for example. Those precious memories are a comfort to our loved ones, and DigitalWill.com is the first and only service that will help you ensure that they are distributed according to your wishes.
