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.
