Study on Access To Electronic Accounts by The Executor or Administrator of Estate

WillsAs I have previously discussed, there are only a number of states that have passed laws that provide administrators of an estate access to the electronic accounts of the decedent. This group includes Connecticut. Now, the General Assembly of Connecticut has introduced an act that would study the effects of allowing the public administrator of an estate to have access to the testator's electronic accounts following their death. Provided here a copy of Proposed Bill No. 5227.

Special thanks to Brian Cohan (Attorney at Law, Law Offices of Brian J. Cohan, P.C.) for bringing this article to my attention.
