  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2020 - Yale S. Hauptman, Founding Partner, and Laurie A. Hauptman, Partner, Hauptman & Hauptman, PC., were recently featured on The Small Business Advocate Show, hosted by award-winning, Jim Blasingame, where they discussed the necessity of long-term care planning for people of all ages.

    During the show, the Hauptmans suggested people should have three critical documents put in place as soon as possible: a financial power of attorney, a healthcare power of attorney, and a will. “People don’t realize that once you’re over 18 years old and you're legally emancipated, somebody is not allowed to actually fill out a claim form for you for an insurance company, they can't file taxes for you, they can't bank for you,” explained Laurie Hauptman. “So what you don't realize is that, without having a person named, you are not protected if somebody needs to help or assist you.”

    The Hauptmans also stressed that time is of the essence with long-term care planning because anything can happen at any given moment. Yale Hauptman elaborated, “Those documents may not need to be used for a good number of years if you’re younger but, as we’ve seen with the current COVID crisis, it can strike anybody.”
