Whether you’re wondering about how to pay for continuing care as you age or how to gift assets, the best source for answers is usually an elder law attorney. No matter what your age, you should have a power of attorney in place as well as advanced directives and a trust or will. This all may sound daunting, but trust me, it’s only a problem if you DON’T have them. Read another blog post for more on this topic: Are Your Parents’ Important Legal Docs In A Row?
The costs of getting all of these documents in place is minimal when you consider the loss that could be incurred if you don’t have them. Protecting everything you have worked hard for and ensuring that it ends up where you want it to go should be a priority. Even if you don’t have much, it is worth investigating. You still want what you have protected and given to certain people or organizations.
