What You Need to Know About Power of Attorney
Is a power of attorney necessary?
Do you forfeit your independence and rights when you have a power of attorney?
Do you need a separate power of attorney when it comes to your health?
A serious illness or accident can happen at any age. It’s smart to be prepared for those incidents. Having a power of attorney (POA) can help you with property-related decisions and actions. It can also grant a trusted friend or family member make healthcare decisions on your behalf.
A Power of Attorney is recognized differently depending on the state. It’s important to create a document recognized by your state of residence. Should an unforeseen event occur and you’re unable to speak on your own behalf – and there isn’t a POA in place – a family member will typically need to go through a lengthy and expensive process to set up a guardianship.
Safeguard you and your family today by having a plan in place. Having a Power of Attorney can help you avoid major challenges and a potential guardianship lawsuit later on.
