Legal & Planning Documents
Having a living will and power of attorney (P.O.A) in place is an important part of retirement planning. A living will outlines your wishes for end-of-life medical decisions and a P.O.A grants authority to another person to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. With these documents in place, you can ensure that your wishes are followed and that important decisions can be made quickly and in your best interests.
Without them, there is potential for conflict and confusion amongst family members, who may not agree on how to proceed. Having a living will and P.O.A gives you peace of mind that your wishes will be respected.
