    Is a Power of Attorney or "living will" the same thing as a "Last Will and Testament"?

    No. Your Last Will and Testament covers the distribution of your property after you die and only takes effect upon your death. A Power of Attorney and a "living will" only apply while you are alive and cease to be effective upon your death.
