Leave ‘Em Prepared

Last week a friend of mine died unexpectedly. His death reminded me of the importance of making arrangements for your surviving spouse (or family members) to have access to information they might need.

This man was the primary computer user in his house. He kept spreadsheets of household budgets, legal documents, and albums of family pictures. He knew the passwords to the wireless network, the online banking sites, the email accounts, and his computer devices.

Fortunately, he made this information available to his wife.

Would your spouse or family members be able to access what they might need of yours? Would you be able to access the information your spouse manages?

Please think about it.
