Enduring power of attorney
If you lose your mental capacity, are disabled, or intellectually impaired, who will manage your financial affairs?
An enduring power of attorney operates when you are alive and may be unable to make financial decisions by yourself. The document ceases to operate upon revocation, the death of you or your attorney and some other circumstances.
- Appointing a trustworthy and responsible person to manage your finances
- Instructions on how to manage financial affairs and property
- Limited or expansive powers
- Permissions for the attorney to effect property and financial transactions, enter contracts, acquire and dispose of assets
- Electing when you want the power of attorney to take effect
Who will make decisions about your health and lifestyle if you lose your capacity through old age, an accident or illness causing your inability to take care of yourself?
An appointment of enduring guardianship differs from a power of attorney. It allows a person to make decisions about your medical needs, personal care and lifestyle.
