Even if Congress and the White House find a way to avoid another partial government shutdown there is another one coming that has your name on it ? no escape. Do you have financial and medical powers of attorney in place? If so, are the persons you have selected to act as your agent still proper? And finally, have there been any events in your life ? i.e. births, deaths, dementia, marriages, divorces and moves ? that could have an impact on your estate plan or that you should at least discuss with your lawyer? On this episode, Tom O'Rourke, a former IRS attorney who now works exclusively on estate planning, tackles these questions. The Your Turn radio show airs at 10 a.m. EST on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. area and www.federalnewsnetwork.com.
