Making The Right Choices For Your Future
A truly effective estate plan addresses your needs as well as the needs of your loved ones. That includes minimizing your loved ones’ burdens and clarifying your wishes in the event that you ever become incapacitated. You can achieve these goals in a variety of ways, including:
Medical powers of attorney — A medical power of attorney allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions for you regarding your medical care if you become incapacitated.
Financial powers of attorney — A financial power of attorney allows you to name a trusted person to make financial decisions for you in the event that you become temporarily or permanently incapacitated.
Advance directives to physicians — Advance directives allow you to communicate your wishes regarding end-of-life care and other issues to your doctor.
Designation of guardian — A designation of guardianship allows you to appoint someone to act as the guardian of your minor children.
Disposition of remains — This can ensure that your remains are treated according to your wishes.
Supports and services — This is a less restrictive alternative to guardianship.
The future can be difficult to predict, and the smartest choice is to be fully prepared for any possibility. As part of a comprehensive estate plan, the tools discussed here can help ensure that your wishes are known and that the people making decisions for you are the ones you choose.
