Following my own personal experience with the death of a loved one, I developed this term:
It is being thoughtfully prepared for one’s own passing. Making things easier for family and loved ones by leaving clear and concise instructions. Everything from information about your final wishes, for funeral desires, as well as the location of how to access important documents, accounts and your digital life. Further, identifying who should be responsible for carrying out your final wishes. And ultimately, settling all the final affairs.
Save your family from the massive scavenger hunt for needed information! Unfortunately, this plagues far too many families. It is unnecessary and totally avoidable. It is also important to see an Estate Planning Attorney. They will prepare the needed legal documents we all should have. Wills, Advance Directives, POA’s and so much more. Then be sure to store and secure these documents. Along with the aforementioned items, so family can access them when the time comes!
My Life and Wishes is the simple, safe and secure way to organize and store all this critical information. This simple act of planning will save your loved ones, Stress, Time and Money. The things which divide families.
