SPEAKER Debbie Stanley, MTI, CEA
Debbie will join us from ETP in Guelph. She is the CEO and Senior Estate Administrator. She is highly knowledgeable in the area of planning your digital legacy and has been recognized for her skills in this area.

TOPIC Digital Estate Planning
Most of us have considered and made plans related to our estate planning. A will deals with money and possessions but your online accounts and content matter too.

Making a will enables you to set out what will happen to your money, possessions and property when you die but, in the online era, it’s also important to consider your digital estate.

A digital legacy is any information you leave behind online after your death. Your online accounts and everything in them are known as digital assets. This means everything from PayPal accounts to social media and photos stored in the cloud that may hold financial or sentimental value. They are all protected by usernames, passwords and privacy policies that only you can access. A person’s digital legacy is often shaped by interactions the person made and information they created before they died.

Join us for this highly beneficial presentation that will include information that will help to answer questions such as:

Have you prepared your digital legacy?
How do you build a digital legacy?
How do you document this?
How do you ensure your digital legacy lives on after you are gone?
How important is this?
What is a digital executor?

Do you have topics you'd like discussed or questions you'd like answered at a future meeting?
