Individuals put off estate planning because they think they don’t own enough, they’re not old enough, they’re busy, think they have plenty of time, they’re confused and don’t know who can help them, or they just don’t want to think it. Then, when something happens to them, their families have to pick up the pieces.
Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, nearly everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own—your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal possessions. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.
Estate planning is not only about the legacy you want to leave your family and your community, it is also a way for you to grant legal authority during your lifetime to those individuals whom you trust, should you become unable to make your own decisions.
A power of attorney enables you to authorize someone as your agent, to make decisions on your behalf with regard to financial matters. Health care directives, such as a health care power of attorney and a living will, are used to document and protect your health care wishes in the event you are unable to communicate them.
