ADVANCE PLANNING - PASSWORDS

Posted on October 10, 2021

If you or your spouse/partner died today, would anyone know how to open all your accounts?

Dear Ones,

I’m writing this to you from ICU at Mayo Clinic. My husband has been sedated and intubated for four days now. He always handled finance. Now I must. But I get nauseous just thinking about it. ‘Don’t get scared, get organized!’ is my motto. I now have a good list after spending hours going through files. He can’t help me now. Thankfully he had given me his checking account username and password months ago when I insisted that I needed to start paying the bills.

It’s so much easier to compile a list now while you are healthy. Store it in a safe place. When the time comes, your family will be so grateful. This is a gift. They will have so many other worries. 

Let’s take action NOW.

We live in a different world.

This is one thing you MUST do now.

HOMEWORK: Get a notebook. Carefully and clearly write down all your accounts with number, user name, and passwords. Leave space under each one. If a password changes, be sure to add it immediately.

·Cell Phone/Devices

·Pension

·IRA

·Computers

·Online sites

·Credit Cards

·Bank Accounts

·Internet

·Storage sites

·Email

·Crypto accounts

·Subscriptions

·Smart TV sites

·Pay Pal

·Investments

·Social Media/Facebook

·Other

The more we act on now, the easier it will be for our loved ones. Since writing this, my husband is recuperating at Friendship Village. Please do this one thing this month. Schedule it!

Blessings to you all,

VickiJolene Reece, Continuous Care Coordinator
