Two powerful estate preparation components are powers of attorney and healthcare directives.
A power of attorney is a legal document that authorizes someone you trust to handle your financial and legal matters if you become incapacitated. By designating a trusted individual as your agent, you ensure that your affairs are managed according to your wishes, even when you cannot make decisions.
Similarly, healthcare directives, such as living wills and healthcare proxies, allow you to express your preferences regarding medical treatments and designate someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you cannot do so.
By including powers of attorney and healthcare directives in your estate plan, you ensure that you may handle your financial and healthcare matters as you desire, no matter the circumstances.
