YOUR LEGAL HEALTH CHECK

A STROKE CAN STRIKE AT ANY TIME. ARE YOU PREPARE?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do I have a Will?
  2. Do I know where it is?
  3. How old is it?
  4. Do I remember what it says?
  5. Have my personal or financial circumstances changed since the date of my Will?
  6. Are the beneficiaries of my Will still the beneficiaries of my choice?
  7. Does my Will take into consideration the personal and financial circumstances of my beneficiaries?
  8. Who is the Executor of my Will?
  9. Is that Executor still the person of my choice?
  10. Is my Executor aware that they are the Executor of my Will?
  11. Does my Executor know where my Will is kept?
  12. Can I foresee any problems arising from my affairs on my death?
  13. Do I have a Power of Attorney? (A legal authority allowing someone to manage your assets and make financial and legal decisions on your behalf).
  14. Is it an enduring Power of Attorney? (A Power of Attorney, as described above, which continues to have effect if you lose your mental capacity or capacity to make decisions).
  15. Do I have an Enduring Guardian? (A legal authority appointing someone to make decisions about your health and lifestyle in the event you cannot make these decisions yourself).
  16. What about my partner? (Have them go through this list too!)

DON’T LEAVE IT TO CHANCE.
