Planning for your own incapacity is not pleasant to think about, but it is important to do. In the unlikely situation where you are unable to handle your own affairs, a proper plan will allow you to designate someone to make those decisions on your behalf regarding your health and finances. This can be accomplished by with a Power of Attorney and a Trust.
Power of Attorney
With a proper Durable Power of Attorney, you can designate who you want to be appointed as your Power of Attorney if you ever become incapacitated. See Power of Attorney for more information.
In a Trust, you can designate how your assets will be managed if you ever become incapacitated and who will manage them on your behalf. See Trusts for more information.
