Making Your Health Care And Financial Wishes Known
Chances are that you have an idea of how you would like your final affairs handled. Even if you have a will in place, you may still be leaving some very important things to chance, including decisions about your finances and medical treatment while you are still alive.
At Scroggin & Burns, LLC, we can help you fill in these gaps in your estate plan with the help of a power of attorney and medical directive. We have been helping individuals, couples and families in the Atlanta metro area for more than 30 years from our location in Roswell, Georgia.
Powers Of Attorney
A power of attorney allows you to designate a trusted individual – such as a loved one, friend or attorney – to act on your behalf and make financial decisions for you when you are incapacitated. This includes ensuring that your bills are paid and even making sure your taxes are filed. When you are unable to manage your finances yourself, your loved ones can have peace of mind knowing that someone you trust is looking out for your interests.
Your estate plan is not complete without a medical directive to address what medical treatments you are willing to undergo and who you trust to make medical decisions in the event that you become incapacitated. A medical directive or health care power of attorney can ensure that your wishes are known and you are in a set of good hands that you have chosen yourself. This also serves as a gift to your children and other loved ones, relieving them of the emotional burden that comes with making these decisions without your input.
