Powers of Attorney
I know you are young and beautiful and you are living life like its golden right now. But are you prepared for the what ifs in life. Are you prepared if you have an accident and you are permanently or even temporarily incapacitated; Do you have a power of attorney?
A Power of Attorney puts someone else in charge of making financial decisions on your behalf should you become unable to make those decisions for yourself.
People most commonly think of a Power of Attorney when they are advanced in age and nearing retirement. But truth be told it’s best to set up a power of attorney while you are young and healthy because you never know when you will need it — incapacity does not always send a warning signal.
Living Will/Advanced Medical Directive
Are you prepared if you have to go in for an emergency medical procedure, who will make healthcare decisions for you; your mom your dad your sister your brother your spouse your children?
