Did you think about your electronic assets? The rise of personal computers, the internet, and now smart phones have revolutionized our lives, and how we transact business. When getting our affairs in order, we need to remember the impact of technology on our lives. Things used to be simple. In a paper based society, it was easy for those we left behind to understand our affairs because we usually left a paper trail. We would receive bills, bank and other financial account statements monthly. At the end of the year we would receive 1099s and other IRS reporting statements which would give our families and personal representatives a roadmap of what we owned.

Our utilities and other regular monthly bills may be automatically withdrawn from our bank accounts In order to avoid annual fees, we may have agreed to have our monthly brokerage statements delivered electronically

ALL costs related to donation are paid by the organ/tissue recovery agencies or the transplant center, including the charges for the operating room and surgeon.

Your Attorney and Physician serve as excellent resources for learning more about the decision to become a donor and how to accomplish
