I am doing some life planning and with many financial accounts requiring double authentication, even if your trustee has your passwords, it will also require them to be able to unlock your phone to retrieve the double authentication code that many financial accounts require.  Does T-Mobile have a way to add a trustee so in case of death that would allow the trustee access to your phone for this purpose?

Thats up to your device manufacturer if there is options for it.

I know Google has a digital legacy you can set up for who you want to have access to your Google account.
