A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions for you, if you are unable to make financial decisions for yourself. The person who will be selected to act on the behalf of a Power of Attorney is known as the agent.
If you do not have this document and become incapacitated, your loved ones will have to seek court orders to manage your assets and pay your bills. You inflict both an emotional burden and legal costs and fees on loved ones during a time when they are already worried about you.
Examples of what a Power of Attorney can do are pay bills, file taxes and manage property. It depends on how your Power of Attorney is written.
There are two main types of Powers of Attorney, known as financial and medical. The medical Power of Attorney is commonly known as a Health Care Proxy, which will allow the agent to make the decisions related to the care and treatment of the person. A financial Power of Attorney will enable the agent to make financial decisions on the person's behalf.
You are free to appoint a single person to be the agent and make both financial and medical decisions on your behalf.
With a financial Power of Attorney, you should consider who will file the taxes on your behalf, make decisions related to your investments, pay and collect your debts, maintain your property, and apply for public benefits on your behalf.
