Share Online Account Login Information With Loved Ones

Money Tip: Give Out Your Passwords

If something terrible happened to you, would your loved ones have to jump through hoops to access your various online accounts? Mine would. I hadn't considered coming up with an online estate plan until a Wall Street Journal article suggested it.

The article recommends a few solutions for making sure your login information is kept safe but is also accessible should you get into trouble, an accident, or worse.
