Upcoming Events


Digital Death: Are You Ready?

3–4 PM
FDL Public Library (32 Sheboygan)

If you have a mobile phone, take a selfie and share with your friends on Facebook, invest in bitcoins, bank online, or own your own web domain, you have digital assets. Available data shows the average total value of your digital assets is $54,000. Yet, surveys show 95% of us don’t know what happens to our digital assets after our death or in the event of incapacity. Don’t feel too bad. Even the lawyers aren’t sure about the rules and laws managing our digital life.

Your estate now includes digital assets, a new type of property. Your digital assets are governed by terms of service contracts and federal privacy rules that don’t exist for a paper-based death. These rules the new laws you and your executor and other fiduciaries must consider when making a plan for your digital death - or serving as an executor. These rules are not the same in all 50 states - or for all internet service providers like Google and Facebook. This new paradigm has created multiple traps for you and your survivors to plan for and manage a digital-based death.
You will learn about the different types of digital assets your estate may include and the rules applicable to different types of digital assets.

You will learn why planning and managing a digital-based death is different than planning and managing a paper-based death - where the instructions in your will or trust for you tweets and selfies must match the terms of service you agreed with when you opened a new account.

You will learn about the Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act (UFADAA). This new law requires you include written consent language in your will or durable power of attorney to give your agent the right to manage and access your free email and social media accounts.

The course includes checklists you can follow to protect your digital assets..

You can use what you learn and have intelligent conversations with your lawyer, your spouse,
and other interested parties about your digital life when you go offline,
including your right to be forgotten.

At the end of 2017, Marissa downsized from a 3 bedroom house in Scottsdale, AZ to just one suitcase and a backpack. In this presentation, Marissa will explain the ins and outs of minimalism, the financial benefits of having "less," and how the minimalist life could bring newfound fulfillment and freedom to everyday life.
