One major issue to consider is who will make decisions for you if you become incapacitated. A Power of Attorney gives another person access to your finances and can allow a spouse, sibling, or trusted friend to pay your bills, deposit and withdraw funds from your bank account, and buy or sell items on your behalf. In addition, a Health Care Directive informs medical personnel and hospitals which person is able to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are not conscious or unable to communicate your wishes.
