Why not make maximizing your employee benefits one of your New Year's resolutions this year? Many employers provide health insurance, paid time off and other perks. Yet, year after year, people continue to leave employee benefits on the table.
Basic estate planning is a great way to utilize your group legal plan. Here are three documents you should work on with an attorney, if you don't already have them prepared:

- A durable power of attorney for financial matters to indicate who can make financial decisions on your behalf.
- An advanced health care directive to make sure someone can make medical decisions on your behalf.
