Set for when you go

In our summer newsletter last year we suggested clients think about how loved ones could access your personal bank and social media accounts when you die.

While Facebook is under fire at present, it has to be congratulated for making it easy for a nominated person to operate your account or close it when needed. Under its Settings > Personal Information > Manage account is something called Legacy contact.

It’s here you can nominate someone you trust, to manage or close your Facebook account. They’ll be advised and be able to do what’s required at the right time. They can use your account to tell all your Facebook friends about your demise, let them respond with (hopefully) kind words and then close your account.
