If there is anything we’ve learned during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s the importance of being prepared. Estate planning is important for all adults. If you become unexpectedly incapacitated, having a plan already in place can help reduce some of the stress and anxiety of your loved ones, allow for quick action and help avoid delays.
The three primary documents you should have in your estate plan are a:
- Health Care Proxy, which designates someone to make health care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so for yourself.
- Power of Attorney, which permits someone to act on your behalf in legal matters within guidelines you establish.
- Last Will and Testimony, which outlines you final wishes regarding your estate and family.
Our attorneys talk more about these documents in the videos below. Depending on your unique situation, other documents may also be advisable. We’ll walk you through every step and make the process as easy as possible, giving you peace of mind.
