Are Estate Planning Documents in Your Hurricane Kit?

As Floridians today mark the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Charley making landfall as a category 4 storm on the southwest gulf coast, we are reminded of our annual to do lists –  Evacuation routes are noted, resupplying our hurricane kit with batteries, bottled water, canned goods, maybe a generator, are part of our shopping trips.

What should also be on every Floridians’ list are estate planning documents.  Having these will not only ensure you are prepared; it will provide peace of mind in the case of disaster.   Hurricanes are unpredictable and can change course in a matter of hours.  We cannot predict when our lives will end, however, being prepared for all possible scenarios can help mitigate the outcome and provide guidance to your loved ones. 

If you already have current estate planning documents, keep those along with other important documents such as homeowner’s insurance info and medical insurance cards in a location that’s easy to find in the case you must evacuate.

If you don’t have estate planning documents, contact Patriot Legal Group today to schedule a free phone consult. 

Stay Safe!
