What are digital assets?

Digital asset is a term that has been increasingly discussed within the estate planning community in the past decade and with good reason.  Any person who has established online accounts or has created digital content has digital assets.  Think of them as the virtual form of your physical life.  Bank accounts, social media, photos, videos, and cloud-based storage - any content you create electronically becomes a digital asset.

Otherwise, your property could be distributed or handled in a way that you would never have chosen.
