It may be November, but Hurricane Season is not over. It ends November 30th. While the odds of a hurricane are lower this time of year, it’s always a good idea to be prepared. Don’t wait until June 1st to think about things that you need in the event of a hurricane:
- Review and update all of your estate planning documents, such as wills, powers of attorney, health care directives, and trusts. Keep them in a secure place, and be ready to take them with you if you had to evacuate on short notice.
- Keep your insurance coverages up to date. Talk to your insurance advisor about cover for wind, flood, fire, and liability coverage.
- Think about your family’s needs if a disaster prevented you from working or resulted in long-term medical care. Health insurance, long-term care coverage and life insurance can mean the difference between struggling to get by and having the resources to meet life’s unexpected changes.
