As You Reach Your Elderly Years You May Need These Documents



If you are over age 75, make sure that you are mentally in position to handle your finances as the normal wear and tear of aging can make reviewing your bank statement and financial portfolios more daunting.



Cognitive impairment should be a real concern as you age and you and your family should have a plan in place to deal with this "real" potential.


You should also be aware of scammers and those who try to defraud you out of your retirement savings by offering services or financial products that do not have your best interest at heart.


As you age and your mental faculties deteriorate consider getting:

  • a durable power of attorney (springing-takes affect only when you are deemed unable to make a decision or)


  •  a health-care proxy (authorizes another family member to make medical decisions on your behalf if you can't do so)


    You could also complete a HIPAA form which would allow medical providers to inform a family member about your health status and treatment.



If you have a will (you should have oneif not you should address that need immediately) and revocable trust you could give a co-trustee (possibly a family member) power to use the money according to the rules of the trust.



The will would inform your heir's of what to do with assets outside of the trust after your transition. 



Keep in mind that Estate Planning can get complex so be sure to obtain competent legal advice in addition to weighing options that you feel might work for you and/or your family.
