And don’t forget your pets in your estate plans! Your pets are a significant part of your life. Make sure that you have taken steps so that they will be cared for if you are no longer able to do so because of incapacity or death. This includes giving your “agent” in a power of attorney the authority to obtain necessary veterinary care, support and housing for your pet if you become too ill, and includes making arrangements in your will or trust to name a person who will receive your pet, and providing some financial support for your pet, in the event of your death.
