We use our daughter to handle mail and any legal issues that may come up. She also has power of attorney to buy, sell or trade any of our assets in an emergency and take care of tax stuff. She also manages our real estate rentals.
We use Visa for money. If we make any we pay it into Visa. If we spend any we take it out of Visa. We usually run with a credit balance because then, as long as you're in credit and the purchase you're making doesn't exceed it, no "authority codes" are required. We can transfer funds in and out on-line.
Finally, we have an Iridium phone and a direct line to our bank manager in NZ and a combination of the three above has always been satisfactory.
