I have a 3-ring binder with subject dividers. Instead of saying "Math", "Science", and "History", mine say:
- Power of Attorney for Finance;
- Power of Attorney for Health Care;
- Beneficiary Forms;
- Instructions; and
- Important People to Contact
I then insert the appropriate documents behind each divider. Instant organization which will make any updates you do far easier. And, should a sudden illness or death occur, my power of attorney or personal representative can pick up the binder and have everything they need at his/her finger tips.
Organization -- it goes a long way!
