DCS is the complete solution to an estate’s new hurdle.

DCS is a powerful platform that records digital property, online account and final directives. We ensure digital property is visible, accessible and maintained while preventing digital content providers from locking estates out or deleting data. Your client’s information is stored with clear and binding user directives without using passwords.

DCS eliminates the unnecessary burden for loved ones and personal representatives of locating and dealing with an estate’s account assets. Hidden or forgotten accounts, many online, can waste not only time and money but have the potential to leave an estate vulnerable to ID fraud. These accounts, when left open, often contribute to years of continued reminders and emotional anxiety.

Your firm can provide relief. Include DCS as part of your suite of services to provide secure, password-free organization of both digital and traditional accounts. When the time comes, notification of an individual’s final wishes is provided which may include account deletion, transference, memorialization or other instruction. DCS works with attorneys and personal representatives to ensure that hidden accounts don’t surface and undo the careful management, both emotional and financial, put into preparing an estate.

How the DCS process works in three simple steps:
