When a loved one passes away, there is grief and loss to try to grapple with and accept. But like so many times in life when we least want to be bothered with legalities, paperwork and details, the time of mourning also includes those intrusions.
When it comes to estate planning, it may be easy for many to overlook the increasing number of transactions that are done online, financial or otherwise. Once someone is deceased, his or her online accounts live on, whether they are for automatic bill payment, digital photo storage or social media. Any New Jersey resident with online accounts may obtain some peace of mind by including provisions for these accounts in his or her estate planning.
Estate planning is often associated with older, wealthier individuals. However, estate planning is beneficial for everyone, including young adults living in New Jersey.
