New Pennsylvania Law Facilitates Estate Planning for Digital Assets

Pennsylvania has just passed an important new law that clarifies both who has the right to access digital assets and the procedures for doing so after the owner dies or becomes incapacitated. This long-overdue law has implications for wills, trusts, and financial powers of attorney. If, like most people, you are the owner of digital assets, you may wish to update your estate planning documents to take advantage of the new law and ensure that your digital assets are managed as you intend.
