What is an Estate Plan?
Estate plans are made of a number of different documents, depending on
your particular wants, the types of properties and financial accounts
you have, and who you want to leave them to.
Types of Documents Include:
Power of Attorney: Power of attorney allows you to appoint a trusted person, usually a spouse
or family member, with the authority to make financial decisions for you
in the event that you are unable to do so. They can, for example, pay
your bills and handle your finances while you are in a coma, severely
ill, etc.. Medical power of attorney, or healthcare proxy, acts similarly
to appoint someone with the authority to make your medical decisions.
Will: A will can designate who will receive your estate. You can specifically
entitle family members and other loved ones to particular properties,
finances, heirlooms, or any other possession. You can also assign donations
to charity, and appoint guardians for minor children.
Trusts: You can also arrange for a third party to hold onto assets on behalf of
a beneficiary by choosing to create a trust. Trusts are generally more
flexible and give you more choices about distribution.
Advanced Health Care Directives: Also called a living will, an Advanced Health Care Directive will inform
family members of what health care and medical treatments you desire.
This can include refusing life support, designating a preferred hospital, etc..
