At the core of very Estate Plan, there are 3 major documents:
1. Last Will & Testament
2. Health Care Proxy
3. Durable Power of Attorney
The purpose of each of these documents is to ensure your wants and needs are abided by, for different aspects of your life.
Typically, a will serves to instruct those that survive you how to distribute your assets. A Health Care Proxy allows you to designate an individual, and to have several back-up individuals, who will make your health care decisions for you if you are incapacitated. Lastly, the Durable Power of Attorney can give authorization to control your finances to whomever you choose to designate, if you should become incapacitated.
