These are uncertain times.  Make sure you have a plan.

What is a will?  

A will is a legal document that provides instructions to be carried out after your death.  In a will, you need to decide who should receive your assets when you die.  You also nominate a Personal Representative, who serves as the manager of your estate.  He/she will pay your debts and distribute your assets according to your wishes.   If you have minor children, you will  nominate a guardian, to be responsible for your children in case you die before they turn 18.

What is a Health Care Proxy?

A Health Care Proxy allows you to designate someone to make medical decisions for you in the event that you can no longer make decisions for yourself.  Executing a Health Care Proxy allows you to decide who will make these critical decisions.  Without a Health Care Proxy, your loved one's may have to go to court to obtain a guardianship if you become incapacitated.

What is a Power or Attorney?

A Power of Attorney allows you to designate someone to handle your financial affairs.  This will be critical if you are ever in a situation where you can no longer manage your own finances.  It is important to choose someone you trust and is also a responsible person.
