In the event you become incapacitated or disabled, it is important to have the following documents in place: Statutory Durable Power of Attorney (or “financial power of attorney”): Allows you to name a designated agent to handle your financial affairs in the event of later incapacity or disability.
  • Medical Power of Attorney: Allows you to name a health care agent to make medical decisions should you become incapacitated. In most cases, these two powers of attorney are critical in helping an individual avoid an expensive guardianship procedure.
  • Directive to Physicians (or “living will”): Give you the authority to state whether or not you wish to receive life-sustaining treatment in the event of a terminal and/or irreversible medical condition.
  • HIPAA Privacy Authorization form: Allows you to authorize physicians, nurses, hospitals, and other health care providers to fully disclose Identifiable Health Information to the individuals designated on the form.
  • Declaration of Guardian: Allows you to name a guardian in the event that a guardianship procedure is necessary.
