Imperative Documents for College Students

If you do not already have these important documents in place for an adult child in college, it is time that you do.

College is an exciting time for families as the next generation forges their own path ahead as independent adults. While it’s often hard to let go, with our College Prep Checklist you can have added peace of mind as a safety net should an emergency situation arise where a child is unable to help themselves. Our checklist is designed to safeguard the next exciting chapter and includes:

  • What document(s) you need:
    • Healthcare Directive
    • HIPAA Authorization
    • Power of Attorney
    • …and more.
  • What the document(s) do and why they are important
  • How to access them
  • What to do with them once they are put in place
