Can Digital Assets Be Included in My Estate Plan? While digital assets are a relatively new phenomenon, your estate plan should definitely cover your digital assets. You can name a separate executor for your digital assets or let the named executor handle both your physical assets and your digital assets. Either way, the person you name to handle your digital assets will need information that allows them to access your computer, your online accounts, and other digital assets.
Digital assets can include e-commerce accounts (eBay or online stores you operate or other income-generating websites), digital intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, or copyrights, PayPal or other online payment systems, email, photographs, music libraries, documents on your device, documents or other items in the cloud, social media accounts, gaming accounts, blogs, accounts with utility companies, bank accounts, and shopping accounts.
