Make a Plan to Protect Your Family & Future
If you haven’t planned for the future, you could be risking everything. The direction of your life and that of your family can change from one day to the next. Without a will or trust, your estate and other assets could be subject to intestacy, which is when the state decides what to do with your property and finances. Don’t let your family get caught in a probate headache or other conflict after your passing.
5 Essential Documents
In order to ensure that your wishes are carried out in the event of death or incapacity, make sure you have these five essential documents prepared: a will, living will, healthcare power of attorney, HIPAA medical authorization, and a general power of attorney. For those who fail to have these documents prepared, the State of Ohio will decide what type of end of life health care you receive, how your property is disposed of, and who will care for your minor children in the event of your death.
