I Can Help You Establish a Durable Power of Attorney
If you become incapacitated and are no longer able to make decisions for yourself or speak for yourself, your agent (the person named to act as power of attorney) makes those decisions for you. Who would you name as financial power of attorney and medical power of attorney? This is a question that requires ample contemplation. The individual should be someone you trust and someone you know would act only in your best interests.
- Financial power of attorney: A financial power of attorney gives a trusted individual the authority to make financial decisions on your behalf. The individual can buy or sell property, handle your bank accounts, help with tax issues and perform other monetary transactions.
- Medical power of attorney: A medical power of attorney gives an individual the authority to make medical decisions on your behalf. The individual can make decisions about your health care treatment. This directive may at times be used in conjunction with a living will.
I can talk to you about the circumstances that may result in you needing a power of attorney and the best way to plan for those situations.
