The Benefits of Being a Co-Trustee on Your Parents or Loved Ones Accounts
As we watch our parents (or any other loved one) make that gradual shift from being totally independent to needing help, there are some steps that can be taken to facilitate family involvement.  Even for those of us who have parents who are 100% capable of managing their affairs, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for an unexpected circumstance. The most common solution for being able to manage our parent’s accounts on their behalf is to have an attorney draft a Power of Attorney (“POA”).  A POA is a legal document that authorizes a person to act on another person’s behalf.  We highly recommend them for everyone 18 years and over, so they can have someone act on their behalf when they are no longer able to make financial or health care decisions.   It creates a fiduciary relationship between the Principal (person who created the document) and the Agent (person named to carry out the instructions).  This is my non-attorney understanding of how it works.

Time to Revisit Your Medicare Part D (Prescription) Plan
This is the time of year when we are inundated with advertisements regarding Medicare.  Most of these messages can be ignored, but we highly recommend that you take a few minutes to shop your Part D stand-alone prescription plan if you are on original Medicare (Parts A & B) and you have a supplement.  You currently have until December 7th to change your Part D prescription insurance plan for the next year.  It is possible that a new insurance plan could save you substantial dollars in 2024, even if you like your current Part D prescription plan.

Inheritances – Is Equal Always Fair?
My friend has an aunt who is a widow with two adult sons with very different financial situations.  One son recently sold a business for a large sum and has in-laws that are very wealthy and own multiple homes.  The other son has a more traditional job and he and his wife provide financial support to her parents.  Despite her sons’ different circumstances, this widow feels very strongly that her assets should be divided equally if anything happens to her.  That is the best decision for their family.
