What is a Power of Attorney (POA) and why would you need one? If you become unable to take care of yourself, a POA would give the person of your choosing the power to make decisions on your behalf.
For example, if you were to develop Alzheimer’s Disease or another condition preventing you from making competent decisions for yourself, your loved one or person you’ve chosen to take care of you can make decisions for you.
Those decisions could include:
- Healthcare-related decisions
- Bank account access to pay bills
- Business operations
- Other personal affairs
A POA has also proven helpful when traveling and something requires your signature or attention while you’re gone — allowing your representative to take care of it for you.
If you’re eager to name a representative in case of a rainy day, or if a rainy day has already come and you need to take action now, the experts at Law to Go are here to help!
