You've worked hard your whole life. You've made money, and saved some, even when that wasn't easy to do. Why? The answer is obvious. You want to provide for your family, and that means even after you're gone.

You've heard the horror stories about families fighting over valuable possessions and valueless knickknacks. These days, you're also hearing about families tied up in court just to access a loved-one's passwords and digital assets.

Estate Map can help. It's an icon-based, step-by-step solution to securely store information about your physical and digital assets, including who gets them, and when.

For instance, you may want to sign over your car to your daughter, if you become disabled. Or, you may want your spouse to have access to all your financial accounts when you die.

Note: When you're inputting your profile, you appoint representatives who can change your Estate Map status. To make the change, at least two of them must report that change before the rest of your family sees it.

Of course, those are things you've probably thought about, and maybe even included in your last will and testament. But, what about all the other things you have in your life that almost no one thinks about before they die?
