Many think of estate planning as something to do after retirement or when faced with a severe illness. But, what would happen if you were on vacation and needed to access a bank account here? If you had a Power of Attorney for Finances and Property in place, your trusted agent could do that for you.
What if you were in an accident and unable to make your own medical decisions? Your loved ones would need to jump through some legal hoops before they could make a decision for you. But, if you had a Power of Attorney for Health Care in place, they wouldn’t have to.
Estate planning encompasses much more than who gets your “stuff” after you’re gone. Having a few key documents in place could make a stressful situation, such as an accident, less stressful on you and your loved ones.
