The speed with which technology is changing is causing problems in many areas of life.   We recently came across involved a situation where a person who had died used to keep all of their banking and important financial information on their computer in a file locked by a password.    The person kept the details of the password secret so that when they passed away no one else knew the password and were unable to access the information held on the computer.

 

A possible solution to that sort of issue is for the person to keep the details of the password in the Security Packet/Envelope where they keep their Will.   If you are in this type of situation then we would urge you to forward to us the password information so we can keep it in your Security Packet along with your Will (presuming you have a Will).
