The HAINES System – Personal Documents
Could your family find your important documents if you were unable to communicate? The greatest gift you can leave them is peace of mind.
Do you have your military papers, insurance information or social security cards easily accessible? Take the time to get your documents gathered, organized and then maintained – for your peace of mind and that of your family’s. This first section of the five included (Personal, Household, Legal, Financial and Medical) covers the items we all need – education papers, passport information, military documents and so forth.
Every one of the five sections has a comprehensive list of documents for that topic. The worksheets can be used to track your collection as well as to provide contact information or to make other notes you need.
The easy way to do this is to utilize The HAINES System, The Blueprint for Organizing Your Important Documents. For us, HAINES stands for Having All Important Notes Executed and Secured. The goal is to help guide you through the process of accomplishing this needed task. Since it is one most do not care to address, we have taken the difficulty out of it. We have taken the research out of it. We have taken organizing the structure out of it. All you need to do is to follow the book.
Next month, the post will be about the Household documents.
