James went on to say that older adults should have a plan ready for any financial uncertainty and a good advisor can help with that. He said that Echelon advisors are equipped with this advice. They can give advice around seeking power of attorney and advice in terms of who to appoint as the power of attorney. Echelon can make sure that a client’s documents are in a centralized safe location that family members and trusted individuals are aware of where those documents are.
