Thinking ahead and leaving instructions in case of illness, injury or death can help ensure someone’s wishes are carried out when the time comes. A new workbook by an experienced financial planner offers guidance on providing clear instructions for families and friends. The workbook is designed is to help someone organize personal affairs in case of death or incapacitation and provide information to the people who will step in once that happens.
“A Sense of Comfort for You and Your Loved Ones” features three sections: getting prepared, going into action and other necessary information. The first section includes detailed forms to record personal information such as emergency contacts, funeral arrangements, property and medical directives. The second section offers a detailed outline of steps representatives must take to handle affairs. The final section is designed to help representatives make informed decisions and includes a glossary of terms and valuable resources, covering such topics as hospice care, legal assistance, death certificates, taxes, trusts and more.
Anyone can benefit from advanced planning, from senior citizens to couples with children, terminally ill people or those with chronic conditions and military personnel who deploy to dangerous assignments.
