No one enjoys thinking about disability or death. Most people avoid the topic altogether. Yet, developing a comprehensive estate plan is one of the most important steps that you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Consider that when you fail to plan, you risk leaving it to others or Pennsylvania law to make critical decisions that will impact your children, family, property, finances, and legacy.
- Last Will and Testament: This foundational document is essential to ensure that your assets and property are passed down to the person or persons of your choosing.
- Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will: If you are seriously ill and/or facing the end of your life, your grieving family may struggle with decisions about your medical care – particularly if you are physically unable to voice them. Having a Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will, in place will give you and your family peace of mind and allow you to focus on each other, rather than on the decision-making process.
- Children’s Safeguard Plan: Trying to decide who will care for your minor children after you are gone can be tough. Making that decision now can help prevent uncertainty and unneeded stress in the event of a tragedy.
- Financial Durable Power of Attorney: Appointing someone to handle your day-to-day financial affairs in the event that you become incapacitated is imperative.
