Sometime over the weekend, I listen to the podcast of public radio's Marketplace. This week one of their guests, Jill Schlesinger of CBS's MarketWatch, mentioned an estate planning checklist.

Here's a link to the list:

Hopefully, none of our heirs will thank us for having used such a list for a long time.

I would think the name of the attorney who drafted the will, trust, power of attorney would also come in handy. If questions arise, he is the one best suited to explain or defend the wording and the thinking.

A few more things... piddly in some aspects... kinda important in others, especially for those of us who have pretty much become completely "plugged in";

Password & Logins to all critical web accounts,
Same for all email accounts (and a list of such accounts,)
A brief list of communities important to notify.

FWIW I now keep a file that I call "Open Sesame" that has all my current usernames and passwords. I print it for DW regularly and keep it "hopefully" buried. I keep a story about Alladin for the first page so it doesn't give it away with a cursury look. These are changing much more often so even my yearly update is outdated in case of the dirtnap.

About 5 years ago my late sister gave me a file with her passwords and account sign on IDs. When she departed the world, it was exceedingly useful, but it pre-dated password management software.

Today, I have my account links encrypted in RoboForm and have left the master password w/ my family members.

I keep it simple and just put the user id and password in the text of the bookmark link so my spouse (and I) can find it if needed.
