The Core Four

These are the basic essential documents of estate planning.  The Core Four Estate Planning Documents are:

Last Will and Testament  - This is your opportunity to distribute your assets according to your wishes  after your death before the state distributes them for you.  This gives you peace of mind over how your wishes will be carried out after your death and also brings peace to your family as well since they will know what you wanted.

Power of Attorney – It is not pleasant to think that the day may come when you lack the capacity to make decisions over you affairs but the power of attorney will give you the comfort of knowing that your bills will be taken care of and your property will be managed by a trusted person if this unfortunate event should occur.

Health Care Surrogate – This document will assure that you have someone in place who can make decisions regarding your medical care in a timely and efficient manner.

Living Will – Make your wishes regarding end of life treatment known.   Your family and friends will be going through a difficult time at this moment.  You can make it easy for them to know your wishes regarding these difficult and make sure that you can have your requests for end of life treatment honored.

This is important, but it is only the beginning.  Stay tuned for information from the Elderly Care Law regarding planning for a healthy, happy future!
