Estate Planning for Young Adults
Do you have a college-age or young adult child? If so, we encourage you to have a conversation with them about who they’d like to make decisions on their behalf (both medical and financial) if they’re unable to do so themselves. Once a child turns 18, a parent is no longer able to make decisions for them.
Hassett & George is pleased to offer a Young Adult Estate Planning Package that can be customized for the young adult in your life.
Examples of what can be included:
- Appointment of Health Care Representative – Allows your young adult to select someone to make health care decisions on their behalf if they’re unable to make decisions on their own.
- Durable Power of Attorney – Allows your young adult to select someone to make financial decisions on their behalf if they’re unable to do so on their own.
- HIPAA Waiver – Allows your young adult to give you permission to talk with their doctors and insurance companies.
- Living Will – Allows your young adult to put in writing whether they want to receive life-supporting treatments should they become incapacitated.
