FINANCIAL PLANNING TIP OF THE MONTH: Dust Off those Estate Documents

Who says spring cleaning has to happen in the spring. If you have not reviewed your Wills and Estate Documents in 5 years, the time is now.

  • Will
  • Trusts if applicable
  • POA – Power or Attorney (Financial and Medical)
  • HIPPA (release of medical information)
  • Living Will – DNR (do not resuscitate) – AKA Cease and Decease (Un plug me doc)

These are your key Estate Documents … Be sure they say what you want them to! Take 15 minutes, to review, if you don’t have time, we will be glad to help! We always like having a soft copy in your personal vault for your and our quick reference too!
