8. Teach your spouse/parents/siblings/children to execute these instructions – Remember you may be busy in hospital and may not have access to all instruments

Some additional points from AIFW group members:

A. Add a NOMINEE to all your bank accounts, insurance policies, all financial products – Saves a lot of hassles to loved ones

B. SCAN all your important documents such as passport, PAN, Aadhar, educational certificates, immovable property docs et al and store them in your mails or cloud services on offer

C. List out all login IDs & account nos of
Bank a/c, email, etc and ensure family is aware of it. Not the Passwords.

D. Physical documents and important IDs and all credit/debit/PAN Cards etc are stored in one briefcase for easy evacuation in an emergency.
