If you don’t want the state or someone you don’t know taking your property when you die, it’s important to have a list of things you want done.
Every adult needs to have an advance directive for healthcare, which includes a living will and a healthcare proxy statement.
You also need to have a last will and testament.
The living will, or advanced directive for healthcare is a form that you fill out to allow medical practitioners to be able to determine what they’re going to do if you’re unable to make that decision yourself.
Don’t wait and force your children and family to have to make that last decision for you.
