We all know as long as our children are under the age of 18 that parents have full legal authority over there medical issues, needs and decisions. What is often time neglected is what if there is a need, God forbid, for someone else to make their medical decisions because they cannot or are unable to after they turn 18.
It is not uncommon before they go away to school to have an adult child sign the typical and normal Medical Powers of Attorney and Directives, like taking out early life insurance that is hopefully never used or claimed.
These type of documents can also end up being downloaded right to someone’s cell phone. It is taking preemptory and proactive steps like this that enhances the probabilities there will be no problems, tragedies or need to utilize such documents.
