Estate planning is more important than ever. Although having a living trust or will which directs the disposition of one's assets after death is a crucial part of the estate planning process, two equally important, but often overlooked documents are the advance healthcare directive and durable power of attorney, which apply while someone is living but incapacitated.
"An advance healthcare directive allows you to choose who would make medical decisions on your behalf if you were to become incapacitated. It also empowers you to set forth your wishes regarding important considerations, such as life support and organ donation," explained Tony.
A durable power of attorney, on the other hand, allows one to choose who would make financial decisions on your behalf and for your benefit, if you are living but incapacitated. Tony said, "For instance, who would pay your bills? Who would deal with financial institutions, social security, government agencies, etc. on your behalf?"
With the threat of Covid-19 at the forefront of everyone's mind right now, many people may feel overwhelmed and helpless, which is why now, more than ever, it is important to ensure that you and your loved ones are adequately equipped to handle whatever challenges may arise.
