Almost all Airmen should have a will, which allows them to direct disposition of property, name guardians for minor children, and appoint individuals to handle their estates. Many Airmen choose to have living wills and durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care, which permit them to express their desires and appoint family members to make medical decisions if they become incapacitated. Special Powers of Attorney allow Airmen to appoint agents to conduct various transactions on their behalf in their absence. Durable Special Powers of Attorney, on the other hand, remain in effect even if the member becomes incapacitated. This is distinguished from Springing Special Powers of Attorney which only become in effect upon the member's incapacitation. If you think you need any of these documents, a legal assistance attorney will advise you on your options.
