What Are Assets?

What Are Considered Assets In Estate Planning?

Essentially everything you own in any form whether or not they have value.  This includes, but is not limited to: bank accounts, stocks, jewelry, cars, clothes, real estate and even includes digital assets (e-mail, blog, photos etc.).

Example Of Assets In Estate Planning

When my mom died it was difficult to find all of her assets because she didn’t leave a list.  We had to track down life insurance policies, frequent flyer miles, and try to gain access to her computer to retrieve priceless photos.  There was a lot we wish we had thought about before she died.  I didn’t realize she had so many assets we would have to track down.
