Why plan now?
Life is unpredictable. If you can’t make your own financial and lifestyle decisions because of an accident, illness or disability, the people you might expect to support you may not be available or may not have the legal authority to act for you when significant decisions need to be made on your behalf.
- If you become very sick or have a serious injury, who will help make care decisions for you?
- If you had an accident, what would happen to your business or your home?
- If you gradually lose the ability to understand and manage your own finances, who would help you?
