Changes to Powers of Attorney in 2015

Beginning on January 1, 2015, there are changes in Pennsylvania Powers of Attorney.  What are Powers of Attorney?  A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document in which the Principal gives authority to the Agent to do activities for the Principal. The powers given can involve financial matters - making deposits, writing checks, selling assets, gifting, etc. - and/or involve healthcare matters - making medical decisions, making placement decisions, etc. 

Should I Pre-Arrange My Funeral?

Long term care planning involves many issues, one of which is pre-arranging your funeral.  There are a number of advantages to doing so.  You get to choose what type of funeral you want, be it burial or cremation, and what funeral home you would like to use.  You can decide if you  want a viewing, graveside services or only a memorial service.  You take a lot of the burden off of your family by pre-arranging your funeral. They do not have to make funeral arrangements while they are grieving. Making your funeral arrangements ahead of time may also help to reduce family conflicts.
