Conversation came up the other day where my TV was asking how she would know all the accounts and stuff she would need access to if something happened to me.
My TV’s brother nearly died a few years back (before we were together) and it was up to them to contact companies to put accounts on hold, or try and sort out bills and close or put accounts on hold. For most of the cases it was a very difficult process where they’d often demand to speak to the account holder even though the account holder was in a coma. It was an unnecessarily traumatic for the whole family as you can imagine.
This morning I just noticed a setting on my GMail account where you can leave a benefactor in the event of something happening to me: https://myaccount.google.com/inactive
Are there other things like this? It’s one of those things that’s never the top priority and there’s never a good time to get it sorted, but I was wondering if it’s something other people had considered and was wondering if it’s something you’ve done and had any tips.
