Estate Planning Tools for First Responders

The most vital estate planning tools offered by Desert Law Group are the financial power of attorney, advance healthcare directive, and medical authorization. We’re offering these estate planning tools to first responders, public safety officers, and medical professionals in Palm Springs, CA. Learn more about the services included:

  • Power of Attorney – This legal document gives someone the authority to act on behalf of another person. Powers of attorney are often used by aging parents who want to authorize their children to make decisions on their behalf. You need to work with an experienced attorney or estate planning lawyer to ensure your power of attorney is recognized by physicians and financial institutions. A power of attorney must be set up in accordance with California state law to be valid. Our state offers four different types of power of attorney: durable power of attorney, general power of attorney, limited power of attorney, and medical power of attorney. A power of attorney provides peace of mind, so you know your affairs will be handled by your loved one.
  • Advance Healthcare Directive – This document allows you to express your wishes regarding medical treatment in the event of an unforeseen occurrence that left you unable to express them. Taking action now can protect your well-being in the future. An advance directive ensures that your wishes will be carried out if you become ill or incapacitated and are no longer able to communicate your desires. You and your loved ones will have peace of mind knowing that your preferences are already in place.
  • Medical Authorization – A HIPAA authorization is an essential estate planning document concerning your private medical information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a federal law that protects the privacy of your healthcare information. The document does not allow healthcare providers or insurance companies to share your healthcare information without your permission. In fact, they cannot share that information with close family members unless you give permission.
