Everyone age 18 and over should create and execute an advance health care directive (also known as a power of attorney for health care), a durable power of attorney for finance, and a will. For those with more or complex assets, a living trust may be recommended. Here are some resources to get you started. Be sure to talk with appropriate family members and friends about your end-of-life and estate planning wishes as you see fit, and help to make sure they have their own documents in order. Find out if you’re named in anyone else’s documents as a medical or financial decision-maker, and ensure you understand not only their wishes, but also your legal and ethical duties in agreeing to assist them. Seek the advice of an estate planning attorney with any questions about these documents, or for end-of-life and estate planning questions in general. Store your finalized documents in a safe place. Recommended practice is to review and revise these documents as your wishes or circumstances change (marriage, birth, death, or divorce), or every five years, whichever comes first.
