The Time to Act is Now!

The time to act is now. We hope this post finds you and your family staying home and staying safe.  It’s amazing how fast times can change in such a short period of time. Thousands of Americans have tragically loss their lives in just the past few months from Covid-19 virus. Michigan is one of the hardest hit states in the country. The nation is being tested and there is no end in sight.

50%of Americans are Unprepared

Times like this that remind us of the need to prepare for what will eventually happen to all of us, death and taxes.    A recent study conducted by Merrill Lynch found nearly half of all American’s over the age of 55 still do not have a Will.  To make matters worse, only 18 percent of people in that age range have all of the recommended legacy plan essentials: a will, a health care directive, and durable power of attorney.

Often times when the topic of estate planning comes up people often think that they cannot afford an estate plan or that a Will is more than enough to satisfy their needs.  However, two of the most essential pieces to a complete estate plan are a health care directive and durable power of attorney.  A Power of Attorney is essential if you become ill and unable to make medical and financial decisions.
