A question you might be asking yourself is "So who really needs an estate plan"? Well, it is always a good idea to have some documents in place no matter your age. As soon as you’re able, it is a good idea to have a financial and healthcare Power of Attorney put into place. A Power of Attorney is a document that allows an appointed attorney in fact to act for someone who is unable to act for themselves. These documents make sure that if you needed help, a hospital would know who to speak with. As people gain assets, they need a more developed estate plan. As you get older, settle into your career, and start to obtain assets, it becomes important to develop a comprehensive estate plan.
