In the past, people didn't think much about what would happen to their computers or phones when they passed away. These days, so much of life is wrapped up in the digital world that making plans for digital assets after your death is important.
In New Jersey and elsewhere, people sometimes use the terms "executor" and "administrator" as though they're interchangeable regarding the estate planning process. However, they are not the same. Generally speaking, the two titles just mentioned refer to males designated to the positions while "executrix" and "administratrix" pertain to females, but for the purpose of this post, "executor" and "administrator" refers to both. When someone asks you to be one or the other, it's crucial you understand the roles and duties assigned to each before agreeing to accept the responsibility.
