Keeping financial affairs in order becomes increasingly difficult as we age. Creating a financial power of attorney helps protect your financial health in the event that aging, illness or an accident leaves you unable to manage your own finances. Naming a trusted friend or family member as your “agent” will help ensure your money is properly managed and your bills are paid when you are no longer able to do so on your own.
Medical Power of Attorney
Health care powers of attorney, also called health care directives, allow you to stay in control of your future health. By naming a trusted agent to make decisions on your behalf and clearly communicating your wishes regarding end-of-life health care and life-sustaining medical intervention, you can rest assured your health-related needs will be met.
