At least let your family know you have a plan
Some people aren’t comfortable with hard conversations, but it’s best to at least tell your heirs there is a will and give them the contact information for your lawyer,” says Cindy Ackerman, a lawyer with Moss & Barnett and member of Minnesota Women Lawyers. Be sure to also let your power of attorney and health care directive know they were named so they know what to expect in case of an emergency. Even minimal information can ease stress in an emergency.
