Your Plan for Life Living Will, Revocable Trust Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Surrogate, Pre-Need Guardian, Last Will and Testament Protects You From Unforseen Circumstances By Jerome Siegle What exactly is a PLAN FOR LIFE? PLAN FOR LIFE is to create financial security the rest of your life. In this day and age, we are faced with so many things that seem to be either out of control or out of our control. We have all heard the expression, THE WORLD DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE!!! Well sometimes you can make it work for you and the PLAN FOR LIFE, helps you to do that. The PLAN FOR LIFE, which includes a LIVING WILL, REVOCABLE LIVING TRUST, DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY, HEALTH CARE SURROGATE, PRE-NEED GUARDIAN and LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT, creates a shield for you that protects you from the unforseen illness or accident, that may leave you unable to make a decision about how you are to be medically treated, whether you want to be artificially sustained or how to deal with your property and assets. It also may allow you to avoid court proceedings such as GUARDAINSHIP and PROBATE, which can save a large amount of money for both you and your loved ones. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE PLAN FOR LIFE, ALLOWS YOU TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF YOUR FUTURE MEDICAL TREATMENT, YOUR ASSETS AND EVEN YOUR VERY LIFE. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY YOUR SPECIFYING WHAT YOUR WISHES AND DIRECTIONS ARE AND BY APPOINTING THOSE WHOM YOU TRUST AND LOVE AND WHOM YOU KNOW WILL FOLLOW YOUR DIRECTIONS IN THE FUTURE. A "PLAN FOR LIFE," allows you to live your life without worrying in the event you should become ill or incapacitated. This Plan allows you to provide for the unfortunate events in life that none of us wish to deal with. By preparing in advance, you are protected in the event the unforeseen happens. How does this preparation work to protect you? The PLAN FOR LIFE does the following- 1. LIVING WILL-Allows you to specifically state what you want to happen to you in the event you are ill and left in a chronic vegetative state. Avoids the necessity of going to court or of someone else deciding for you. 2. HEALTH CARE SURROGATE-You choose someone you trust to make medical decisions for you in the event you are unable to make decisions or you are incapacitated, either temporarily or permanently. 3. DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY-In the event of incapacity, you select persons who you trust to make decisions for you and to control your assets and property. 4. PRE-NEED GUARDIAN-You select someone to be your guardian if it becomes necessary. This allows you to control who will care for you and not allow the courts to appoint someone you may not want. 5.REVOCABLE LIVING TRUST-Allows you to potentially avoid the excessive costs, stress and time involved in a probate or guardianship. It creates a "shield" that lets you live the rest of your life in security and peace of mind. Contact Information for author of this article: The Law Office of Jerome R.
