Do I Need a Will & Estate Planning?

Are you trying to decide if you need help with will and estate planning? Most people have worked hard for their home, property, and other assets, and they want to see that those assets remain in their hands or in the hands of people they love and care about. These are not issues one should brush under the rug—after all, many people have very clear ideas about how those assets should be managed and what should happen to them. There are a number of benefits to estate planning, and Hammond and Associates can help you decide what will happen to your assets overtime.

Do I Need a Power of Attorney?

What happens when a loved one can’t make his or her own financial decisions anymore? A power of attorney is a document in which you give someone legal authority to act for you. It allows people to assign someone to make decisions for them in case they are unable to make decisions for themselves. At Hammond and Associates, we aim to help our clients think about and prepare for the future. That way, you can focus on the needs of your loved ones and yourself.

Do I Need an Advance Directive?

An Advance Directive is a legal document that can be used to set out preferences concerning future health care decisions. It can be used to designate a health care agent, set out treatment preferences, and address issues that will arise after a person passes away. If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot make a medical decision for yourself, an advance directive allows your doctor to know what decisions you would like made. By planning ahead, you can take the burden of making a difficult decision off of the caregiver in a moment of crisis and grief.

Do I Need Long Term Care?

The current or potential need for long term care is a matter that causes distress and financial hardship for many people. While most people prefer not to burden their families as they approach a point of needing help, many do not plan specifically for their future care needs. The reason for this neglect may be that long-term care and insurance are believed to be too expensive or that they may not be aware of strategies that could provide peace of mind. Determine whether long term care is necessary for you by calling ​301-861-4555.
