Helpful Tips on Planning for Incapacity

Planning for incapacity, sometimes called competency and capacity designations, is one aspect of elder law that people especially want to avoid. To help make this crucial topic a little easier on you when it comes time for you to start planning, keep this list of common key terms when the time comes.

  • Powers of attorney (POA): Giving someone direct control of important decisions in this way may be the best way to avoid delays or complications
  • Enduring property control: property protections and control.
  • Legal counsel: You might want to start thinking about assigning power to a professional elder law attorney instead of a family member.
  • Gifting funds and assets: Sometimes you can help your estate early by planning on gifting certain assets when you become incapacitated.
  • Amendments: It will be beneficial to change some of the terms set forth by your power of attorney.
  • Unintentional revocation: Read everything before you sign it. This is not just elder law and estate planning advice, but general legal advice that happens to apply to incapacity planning; do not sign anything until your lawyer reviews it with you.
  • Mental and physical health: You might want to make separate powers of attorney for healthcare and mental healthcare that trigger depending on what incapacitates you.
  • Sooner than later: Incapacity planning must happen before you become incapacitated.
