Why Designate Power of Attorney?
If you are ever unable to act on your behalf whether due to illness, incapacity or another reason, having a third party who can help and take care of the financial matters can be immensely helpful. By granting another individual power of attorney (POA), you and your loved ones are able to avoid a costly undertaking such as establishing guardianships.
In these instances, the designated person can help take care of financial matters, including paying your bills and medical expenses, as well as managing your assets and accounts if you are incapacitated or unable to make those decisions on your own.
There are several ways to draft power of attorney documents. We can help you determine if you should make it durable (whether the power continues to be in effect under certain considerations) as well as when it should end (typically, POA is automatically extinguished after your death).
