FREE In Case of Emergency Document Checklist for Students and Young Adults
As a parent, you need to think about preparing an I.C.E. card along with the proper legal documents for your young adult children so you can step-in and handle their affairs if something should render them unable to for themselves.
That’s why we at AmeriEstate recommend that everyone over the age of 18 get these documents:
- Power Of Attorney Financial
- Power Of Attorney Health
- Advanced Health Care Directive
- In Case of Emergency I.C.E. Card for Young Adults - This card immediately shows vital personal medical information about your child. It also provides them with access to their Advanced Health Care Directive and HIPAA Release.
