Power of Attorney

 

The Power of Attorney provides you with the option to choose who makes decisions for you rather than a court..

When a person signs a power of attorney, and later becomes incapacitated and unable to make decisions, the attorney (agent) named can step into the shoes of the incapacitated person.

The three most common types of powers of attorney that delegate authority to an agent to handle your financial affairs are the following:

General power of attorney

Limited power of attorney

Enduring or Durable power of attorney.

POAs aren’t only necessary for those who are incapacitated.

To handle their affairs “at home,” expatriate workers and their families should set up a POA. Younger people who travel a great deal might appoint someone to handle their affairs in their absence, especially if they don’t have a spouse.

Generally, POAs are created when someone is elderly or facing a severe, more prolonged health crisis.
