In the same way that you don’t buy life insurance to benefit yourself, making a Will and Power of Attorney is an unselfish act that benefits your family.
Sadly, if you do not make a Will then you can leave a mess. That tends to be an emotional mess whilst the family sorts itself out or disputes arise but if you do not make a Power of Attorney it can also be an expensive mess as court action may well be required to make arrangements for your care.
Making them does not take long and they are file and forget. Once you have done it, you can breathe a sigh of relief and relax knowing that you have done the best you can for your family.
