Once you have a will, you should do the following to make the executor’s eventual task easier:

1.  Inform your executor where the will is located.
2.  Place a list of your financial assets, including life insurance policies, with the will.
3.  Place a list of on-line passwords with the the will.
4.  Place a list of instructions about various items of personal property with the will.

Do not place the will in a safe deposit box – it will be inaccessible.
