Providing Clients with Insight & Foresight for 30 Years
Whether you just graduated from college or you are about to celebrate your 30-year class reunion, it is never too soon to start strategizing about your financial legacy in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself later. Aspen Legacy Planning can help you answer questions about finding someone to legally make decisions on your behalf. Learn about power of attorney and why you need one by calling us today.
A power of attorney is a document that bestows a trusted relative or friend with the authority to make decisions for you in the event that you become incapable of doing so. This agreement is vital to ensuring your health care and finances are managed to your specific standards. Selecting an agent to act on your behalf can be stressful, but your decision need not be final as your power of attorney can be amended for as long as you remain mentally sound.
Types of Powers of Attorney
The two main areas of concern when planning for your future are health care directives and financial powers of attorney.
Health care directives consist of:
- Going to court to fight for your desired health care plan
- Conferring with your doctors and other medical professionals
- Being authorized to review medical records
- Reserving the right to visit you in the hospital
Financial powers of attorney focus on:
- Making sure your bills, taxes, and medical expenses are paid on time
- Overseeing your real estate portfolio
- Investing your money for you
- Selling your property, if appropriate
- Managing your business
Now is the time to start taking your future seriously. At Aspen Legacy Planning, Principal Attorney Stephen J. Wesolick can walk you through the steps in the estate planning process so you can determine what arrangement suits your needs.
