Fortunately for most of us there is the support group of family.  They
know these things and would help me with them.  If I become
incapacitated there is an envelope of instructions that I keep updated
with current information on my accounts.  Mostly it tells how to get
into particular computer files where I keep my current account
information stored.  If I had amnesia this would be sufficient for me
to recover.  If I do not recover then it would facilitate the transfer
of my estate.  Of course not everyone is fortunate enough to have a
supportive family to draw upon for help.
