Be sure to allow yourself enough time to create this list. Especially when dealing with unpleasant topics you try to get it over with quickly, but it is important to work as completely as possible in order to make everything easier for the relatives later on.
When you have completed this list, you must consider the following:
- Set trusted person
- Where do you store the stored data?
- Password for file protection
The trusted person should normally be a close family member, as he would have to face these challenges even in the event of a fall as a potential heir.
For the storage of the data (preferably on a USB stick and optionally a second secure medium) it is advisable either to rent a locker or, better still, to appoint a notary to store it, this data in any case and only guaranteed transferable persons.
Furthermore, you should protect the data contained on the disk, or better still the access to the disk with a password that only you, the trusted person, and possibly the notary know. If, over time, something about your access data for online accounts changes, you can simply swap the list for a new medium relatively easily.
