25 Documents You Need To Keep In One Place

Article by Lisa Hammel, Esq
Williams & Williams PSC

We may not like to think about it ... but how will your affairs be managed if you were suddenly involved in a severe accident which rendered you incapacitated?  Certainly, this is why having  Powers of Attorney in place for both financial and health care issues are so critical.  But just as important is to ensure that the person(s) who has been granted this power knows where the most critical documents and information are kept.  Of course, this may not be an issue if that person is a spouse --- but what if it is a child or family friend?  For that reason, it is recommended that you keep the following documents in one location -- and that the person you have granted Power of Attorney to knows where the information is kept - and how to access it, if necessary.
