Do you assist clients with personal or estate planning? If so, you’ll be interested to know that the Nidus Personal Planning Registry is back online after several years on hiatus.
Via the Public Guardian and Trustee, the Nidus Personal Planning Registry “allows for the storage of personal details and documents related to personal planning, end of life wishes and memorial arrangements in one convenient, centralized location.”
Both individuals and their lawyers or notaries may register documents, such as:
- representation agreements
- enduring powers of attorney
- advance directives
- advance care plans
- living wills
- revocation notices
- other related documents, such as list of medications, memorial arrangements, no-CPR forms, etc.
A Personal Information Record that includes a person’s contacts and important details (health conditions, allergies, doctors, banks, etc.) may also be created.
Registration in the system is $25 for a first registration and $10 for each additional registration. Once registered, individuals may print a wallet card, and rest assured that their plans and wishes will be accessible to authorized hospitals, financial institutions, and government agencies from one central place.
