Palm Harbor Retirees
Review Your Will
Create and Fund a Trust
Now that you’re retired, you’re likely thinking about what you will leave to your children and other family members. Your Palm Harbor estate planning attorney can help you create and fund an irrevocable or revocable trust.
A trust allows you to move property out of your estate. Once the property is in the trust, it doesn’t have to go through probate before it’s passed down to your beneficiaries.
Have Advance Directives in Place
You might have fun and relaxing years ahead. However, you could eventually become incapacitated at any time. You don’t want to put an undue burden on your family, so it’s important to have advanced directives in place.
Your Palm Harbor estate planning lawyer can draft a living will on your behalf. You can use this document to outline the type of care you want to receive if you cannot make decisions. For instance, you can choose if you want to receive a feeding tube or not.
The attorney can also help you choose a health care surrogate. Your surrogate will make medical decisions for you if you cannot make them yourself.
A power of attorney is also a crucial advanced directive. The designated person will handle your financial accounts if you become incapacitated.
Your attorney can even help you designate a pre-need guardian. This person will take over your care if you’re incapacitated.
By having these documents in place, your family won’t have to petition the court if you cannot care for yourself. This will remove some of the stress and anxiety that comes with caring for aging family members.
You want to make the most out of your life during your golden years. That’s much easier to do after visiting a Palm Harbor estate planning attorney. With the right documents in place, you’ll have peace of mind, making it easy to live life to the fullest.
