The Elements Of An Estate Plan
We recommend that everyone have the following estate planning documents in place:
- A will allows you to designate how your assets are distributed after death.
- Under a power of attorney, you name an agent to act on your behalf in the event that you become disabled or incapacitated.
- A financial power of attorney allows your agent to represent you in financial and business transactions.
- A health care power of attorney permits you to designate an agent to act on your behalf in health care decisions if you are unable to make such decisions for yourself.
- A living will allows you to state your wishes for end-of-life treatment. It informs your loved ones and your medical providers as to the level and type of care you wish to receive at the end of life.
Beyond the estate planning basics, the firm can assist with planning for long-term care, including managing Medicaid and Medicare eligibility to pay for nursing home care without depleting family assets.
Ms. Anderson also assists with estate administration (probate) if a loved one has passed.
