Removing social media profiles after death

Your digital legacy may live on longer than you'd like.  Social media profiles can be difficult to remove if spouses and other family members do not have records of your log in credentials.  That's why estate planners like Bob Ross of Ross Estate Planners in Sturgeon Bay says it is vital to keep a location list.  He says having a power of attorney in place, even if you should become incapacitated, will allow someone else to be able to access and make changes to your social media. The federal government has just passed a new rule, according to Ross. 



Ross adds that it could take up to  a year or longer fighting in court to get access to  a family member's or friend's online accounts.  Facebook users can now select an option in advance to have their account memorialized or permanently deleted.
