New Proposed O.C. Rule for Digital Assets

The Orphans’ Court Procedural Rules Committee has published a new proposal for a rule for Registers of Wills for the disclosure of the digital assets of a decedent to the personal representative of the decedent’s estate in accordance with 20 Pa.C.S. § 3908. “Proposed Adoption of Pa.R.O.C.P. 10.7,” 51 Pa.B. 7362 (12/3/2022).

This proposal supersedes a previous proposal for a Rule 10.7 which would have consisted of a cross-reference to 20 Pa.C.S. § 3908. That proposal was opposed by the Pennsylvania Bar Association.

Comments on the new proposal may be submitted on or before February 17, 2023.

For additional information about digital assets and the procedures for accessing those assets, see “Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets” (7/27/2020).
