Approximately 55 percent of American adults do not have a will or other estate plan in place, according to legal resource company LexisNexis. About 41 percent of American adults have living wills, which explain what medical care you wish to receive if you are incapacitated. Meanwhile, 38 percent of adults have a healthcare power of attorney, which gives another person power to make your healthcare decisions if you become incapacitated.
Miller will discuss these documents and then answer questions. Packets of information also will be provided to the participants.
