Do you have the Book?

If you’re like most people, you aren’t eager to spend time thinking about what would happen if you became unable to direct your own medical care because of illness, an accident, or advanced age. However, if you don’t do at least a little bit of planning — writing down your wishes about the kinds of […]

Your health care directives — including your living will and power of attorney for health care — might be the most important estate planning documents you ever make.

Day 17

Secure Places and Passwords

Welcome to Day 17! 

Today you will compile Info on your Secure Places and Passwords

If you have the Yup I’m Dead…Now What? Book, you can find it in Chapter 20.

In this Chapter, you will document a your secured places – including online accounts, passwords, physical items with locks, access codes, keys, safe deposit boxes and secret locations.

We talked about Safe Deposit Boxes on Day 14 and how you may want to name a co-owner. In states that seal safe deposit boxes when an owner dies, even co-owners are kept out. If survivors need to access the box during this period, they will need to get a court order. A court order may be granted if survivors are searching for a will, trust, or burial instructions—or when they simply want to take inventory of the property in the box, without removing anything. 

Here is more information regarding safe deposit boxes and access

Also in this Chapter, you should list each product and service for which you have a username and password, access code, combination, key or PIN. Here are common items:

  • Cell phone
  • iPad
  • Computer
  • Email Accounts
  • iCloud Storage sites
  • PO Box
  • Home Alarm System
  • Garage Key Code
  • Home Safe
  • Mailbox
  • Gates
  • Storage Unit
  • Lockers, drawers, cabinets
  • Netflix
  • Cable TV Provider

If you have documents related to items described in this Chapter, you should indicate their location or file them in or near your book. Perhaps a document folder that is attached to your book would be a good option.
