Estate Planning in the Time of Corona
Amid this pandemic, as we are barraged with tragic videos and news reports, many Americans are anxious about what would happen should they get sick and be unable to make informed decisions or manage their financial and legal affairs. Some may have no estate planning documents in place, or have outdated ones with incorrect beneficiary/guardian/power of attorney designations. Others may never have completed their planning due to indecisiveness around certain difficult decisions.
We recommend that completing your estate planning be moved to the top of that annoying, back-of-your-mind to-do list. Our current situation highlights the importance of having the following crucial documents in place and up-to-date:
- Revocable trusts or wills
- Powers of attorney
- Health care surrogates, and living wills
For those who have delayed completing their planning due having to make difficult decisions such as selecting guardians, powers of attorney, and/or how to treat heirs/beneficiaries, we are available to guide you.
