Most People’s “Estate Planning” Documents Inadequate

We had a very well attended and successful program on Alzheimer’s Disease last year (and we will do it again after the Holidays). There was one sober lesson I wanted to share with you. I offered to review any attendee’s “estate planning” documents from the point of elder law, not “death and taxes.” Quite a few took me up on the offer. I focused on their trusts and powers of attorney. In every case the documents did not grant some authority to take care of all matters of the client. With only one exception, I had the following report:

They were all inadequate.

What did that mean? That failing could force anybody into life-long probate – guardian or conservator. And that means that the probate court is in charge of every facet of your life. Where you will live, what medical treatment you will receive is all under the control of the guardian. All your finances will be in the public record. The conservator will file and inventory of your property and will file an account every year. The account will detail every dollar that you got and every expenditure that was made on you. Attorneys fees for the public hearings may run into the thousands of dollars.

All of that is easily avoidable.

All you have to do is have your legal documents tailored to fit your needs. You can be in control even when you must rely upon others to help you. So if you are at all concerned about aging and your long term care needs, just give us a call and let’s get your protection started!
