Alzheimer's disease requires a different kind of planning, not only for health and personal care, but also for estate planning. Here are 5 things to consider in estate planning for someone with Alzheimer's:
- Make sure your name, birthday and social security number are all the same on all your documents
- Probate (http://www.americanbar.org/groups/real_property_trust_estate/resources/estate_planning/the_probate_process.html) can be complicated if there are multiple assets in different states.
- Update your legal documents, roll over your employer plan to your own IRA for control and make sure you have the right papers to control your spouse's retirement if they become disabled.
