Need for liv­ing will isn’t al­ways part of the dis­cus­sion

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Great point in Peter Fine’s op-ed re­gard­ing liv­ing wills and med­i­cal pow­ers of at­tor­ney (“Make liv­ing will a re­quire­ment,” Mod­ern Health­care, Feb. 10, p. 19). As a li­censed fi­nan­cial ad­viser and fi­nan­cial plan­ner, the dis­cus­sion of both of these has al­ways oc­curred in my prac­tice, and many other ad­vis­ers do so as well. Un­for­tu­nately, this dis­cus­sion doesn’t hap­pen across the board. Fur­ther, even though we ad­vise clients to have these in place, they don’t al­ways act on the ad­vice and com­plete them. Aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tion can only help.
