What documents are really needed for estate planning?
When it comes to estate planning for long-term care there are three main documents that your client should have prepared. Those documents are the for the power of attorney for finances, the power of attorney for health care, and special needs trusts for spouses. Be careful when it comes to using form documents as they can create issues. They must be drafted pursuant to your state law as every state is different.
