Your will is the document in which you can name who
will care for your minor children or other dependents, and
directs who will inherit your property. Once the directions
in your will are carried out, the document expires.

You may decide to set up a trust to provide for the
ongoing care of your heirs, or the ongoing disposition of
your assets. For example, you can set up a trust that will
provide an income for your spouse or to care for a disabled
child. Unlike your will, a trust is a document that survives
even after your will expires.

Health Care Directives

Depending upon where you live, you may want to
consider both a health care declaration and a Power of
Attorney for health care. Some states combine these
two documents within an advance health care directive.
Together, these documents allow someone you choose
to carry out your health care decisions, or to make health
care decisions for you, in the event that you become
unable to do so.
