Disability Planning

As the American population continues to age, estate planning is expanding to include elements of disability planning. Disability planning protects you and your family in the event that you should become incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself. Craig, Deachman & Associates PLLC and our associated estate planning firm at Legacy Trust and Wills provide guidance for clients who wish to maintain security and peace of mind in the event that a disability or medical event renders them unable to communicate their wishes. We can explain in detail the limits of Medicare and Medicaid, and also offer legal tools that facilitate preplanned decision-making, including:

  • Durable power of attorney. This is a legal designation for a person who can make financial decisions on your behalf, and have access to your accounts in the event that you become incapacitated.
  • Health care proxy. In the event that you become unable to make decisions about your medical care, a previously appointed heath care proxy can be empowered to make decisions on your behalf.
  • Living will. This document outlines your wishes regarding medical care at the end of life, and is intended to be used in the event that you become unable to articulate your wishes on your own.

Our firm can help to incorporate disability planning into your overall estate plan. Speak with a lawyer at our office in Manchester, New Hampshire, or in Andover, Massachusetts, to discuss what kind of plan might work best for you.
