In this very candid and instructive heart-to-heart TED Talk about end-of-life planning, Tom Brokaw shockingly admits to his daughter, Jennifer, “unfortunately I don’t know a lot about my living will. In fact, I’m not even sure where it is at this point.”
This discussion raises some very important questions about your estate planning situation:
- Does your living will still reflect your wishes? There are many reasons why you may want to update your living will and/or healthcare power of attorney: Has your relationship with your family changed? Is your agent still able and willing to act on your behalf? Has your health changed? Have your beliefs changed? Have you moved?
- Have you discussed your wishes with your family?
- Do you know where your Healthcare documents are located?
