According to a USAA web site that was updated in May of 2014, "If you or someone you care about is facing a terminal illness, you may find the emotional strain is compounded by financial concerns. Following these suggestions may go a long way toward helping you and your family with your financial future."
1. Tackle the legal aspects. Having an up-to-date will is crucial for making things go more smoothly for your survivors and ensuring that your wishes are honored. But there are several other simple yet important legal documents you should obtain as well:
2. A living will, which records your wishes regarding the measures that should be taken to extend your life
3. A medical power of attorney, which empowers a trusted individual to make medical decisions for you when you're unable to do so
4. A medical privacy release, which gives health care providers permission to keep named family and friends informed about your medical situation
5. A durable power of attorney, which lets you identify someone else to manage your financial affairs in the event you're incapacitated
