When you are young, healthy, and energetic, the feeling of indestructibility is understandable and, even for us older folk, very relatable. Believe it or not, we were there once. The idea that no matter what life throws at you, you will bounce back, maybe slightly scarred but with no long-term concerns, is common amongst the majority of young people. However, if serious issues do arise, whether in regards to your physical health or financial stability, it makes sense to have a plan in place. While you may still be covered under your parent’s healthcare plan and perhaps are even still being financially supported by them, in the eyes of the law once you turn 18 years old you are an independent adult, with all of the adult responsibilities that come with it. Unlike before, if something were to happen to you, legally speaking, your parents are no longer in a position to speak for you.
The team at Scott Bloom Law is pleased to introduce our Young Adult Dependent Program, specifically developed to help you as you enter legal adulthood. Being prepared for any crises that may arise as you enter adulthood allows for peace of mind for you and your family. Having the proper paperwork in place now can help you avoid undue stress in the future if you were to face an unexpected crisis. For example, granting your parents Power of Attorney allows for them to speak on your behalf on financial and medical issues if you are unable to. While we understand you are at a time in life where these matters may seem trivial and unimportant, our team has unfortunately dealt with families faced with these types of issues in the past. Their lack of preparedness made things very stressful and costly. With your independence comes a responsibility to protect yourself and make things easier for your loved ones. This includes having the proper paperwork in place so that your wishes are spoken for, even if you are unable to. It is always best to be prepared and by utilizing our program, you will be ahead of the game. Live for today but plan for tomorrow.
