Important Life Planning Components
Life planning is a precautionary step that involves creating important
legal documents and preparing for instances in which you may become incapacitated
or incapable of speaking on your own behalf. Important life planning components include:
Living Will: A living will is an important legal document that allows you to specify
your wishes for healthcare if you become incapacitated, disabled or unable
to specify those wishes. It is a way for you to indicate your preferences
for life-prolonging measures. For instance, if you were to go into a vegetative
state, you can specify whether or not you want extensive measures to be taken.
Pre-Need Guardian: A pre-need guardian is a designated person that steps in for you if you
become disabled or incapacitated. It is a way to ensure that if something
were to happen to you, someone you love and trust will be there to step
in and take care of you.
Revocable Trust: This type of
trust can be modified at will. It is a container that holds certain assets for
your loved ones. Once you pass away, these assets are then distributed
exactly how you want them to be. If you become incapacitated, a successor
trustee can step in for you: this is a person who is put in charge of
managing the assets in the trust and making sure that they are appropriately
distributed to your loved ones.
