The group’s legal plans will offer services to help employees deal with everyday legal situations. For example, the salespeople will help prepare simple wills and living wills. Sometimes the language can be simpler. For example, a plan member may need help figuring out who is an executor instead of someone who has medical power of attorney because both are legal positions. Here are the differences.
Areas of authority
An executor and a personal medical power of attorney have the primary task of carrying out an individual̵7;s wishes. Responsibilities are different. An executor begins his duties after the person has died. However, the person with medical power of attorney is responsible for making medical decisions on behalf of someone who cannot make the decisions themselves. The latter has no authority to distribute the assets of a medically disabled individual.
The executor will file a will with the probate court in the deceased’s jurisdiction. The executor will also collect and manage the assets until distribution. The executor will pay all outstanding debts and taxes owed by the deceased to the deceased, and will take the money from the estate to carry out these tasks. The company administrator also notifies creditors of the deceased’s death.
The distribution takes place in accordance with instructions given in the will, and the executor of the will follows these instructions. For example, assets may need to be sold or divided, and the executor distributes the assets quickly and fairly. In addition, executors decide disputes about wills or estates.
The person with medical power of attorney is responsible for making health care decisions on behalf of another person who is medically incapacitated and unable to make the decisions. Is responsible for making care decisions, communicating with caregivers, advocating and making end-of-life decisions.
Healthcare decisions about medical treatments, procedures and operations. What is important is that these decisions are tailored to the disabled person’s wishes, and decisions must be made in that person’s best interests. Medical powers of attorney allow the holder to communicate directly with healthcare providers to ensure that an individual’s wishes are carried out. The holder will also advocate for the individual.
