Have you wondered what happens to you and your assets in the event that you are severely ill or incapacitated, for example, if you fall into a coma or suffer from a brain injury, or if you die?
If you wish to have the assurance that your assets will be managed or distributed in accordance with your intentions when you die, or that the right decisions will be made for you by a trusted person in the event that you are no longer capable of making those decisions for yourself, then you will need to plan ahead.
A Power of Attorney is a legal document that enables you to appoint a trusted person to deal with your financial affairs or make certain decisions on your behalf in the event that you are unable to manage them yourself.
A Will is a legal document that sets out your wishes for the distribution of your assets upon your death. If you do not have a Will when you die, then all of your assets will be distributed pursuant to intestacy law. Making a Will ensures that not only are your loved ones properly provided for but that your assets may be distributed to other persons or charities that are not covered by intestacy laws.
