Important Documents To Get In Order While You Are Still Healthy & Able To!


Below is a list of some of the important legal documents you should prepare now while you are still healthy!

  • Durable Power Of Attorney
    (For Legal Matters - It allows you to name someone to act on your behalf for any legal task and it stays in place if you become unable to make your own decisions.)

  • Advance Directives
    (Let you make arrangements for your care if you become sick.)

    There are two ways to do this:

    1. Durable Power Of Attorney For Health Care 
      (For Medical Decisions - It lets you name the person you want to make medical decisions for you if you can’t make them yourself.) Note: Make sure the person you name is willing to make those decisions for you.

    2. A Living Will
      (For Medical Decisions  - It gives you a say in your health care if you become too sick to make your wishes known. In a living will, you can state what kind of care you do or don’t want. This can make it easier for family members to make tough healthcare decisions for you.


  • Wills and Trusts
    (They let you name the person that you want your money and property to go to after you die.)


NOTE: It is best not to attempt to complete these documents yourself, but rather work with an attorney you can trust. Each state may have different laws and may interpret these documents differently and in some cases can be voided if completed incorrectly.
