I am sure i could find it if i looked, but i have posted before about the document I have with the *important stuff* - that gets updated every year with ALL financial and social account names/numbers & passwords, as well as a note of what bills are paid electronically (all of them), from what accounts, etc...
This includes email & FB
my phone doe not have a password.

Until a couple years ago I mailed a double enveloped copy to my mom as well - just in case GoMC and I are on the same flight that goes down.
As i occasionally change passwords, and mortgages/insurance companies are sold, etc... annual updating is good.
Along with this is a list of "Who it is important to notify" -
including a few people who are NOT on the internet (yes, they still exist)

WHen my dad died (unexpectedly) he had EVERYthing in one place and it was so nice to not have to figure that out.
As a result, as soon as I came home after that, I got it all together.

peace & preparation
