It’s about time. Kids are going off to college (or may be attending virtually at home this year!) So the timing is perfect to announce our College Student Protection Plan™.
Many parents help their kids write a resume, practice interviewing for a job, and teach them how to handle personal finances. These are all important “adulting” tasks. But have they been taught to protect themselves legally?
Many parents do not realize that as their children reach 18, their parental legal rights diminish. If a college kid gets into a car accident (or gets COVID-19) parents no longer get access to information or can make decisions automatically because of state statutes and federal privacy laws.
We can help these kids prepare for adulthood with our College Student Protection Plan™.
First, this plan includes speaking with an attorney to practice “adulting” (and to learn we’re not so scary). Second, the plan includes a suite of legal documents to ensure a young adult has permitted trusted individuals to access information and make important health care and financial decisions for them in case of emergency. The College Student Protection Plan™ takes away the stress and expense that might be incurred if a court had to be involved. This plan includes a health care power of attorney, HIPAA medical privacy authorization, living will, and financial power of attorney.
Not Just for College Students
And, by the way, even though we are calling this the College Student Protection Plan™, this plan applies to all young adults regardless of whether they are in school or not. So, if you are a parent of a college-bound kid or young adult, or are one yourself, give us a call. We can help. We’re even offering a 20% discount* off these services (now only $960) because hey, we were once starving college students ourselves.

**Discount applies until Sept. 30, 2020. Contact the office after this date to see if there are any current promotions.
