A Power of Attorney gives a person the legal authority to act on behalf in the financial matters of your choice. A Power of Attorney may be limited to single purpose such as the sale of a home or may be expanded to include additional matters.
What if an accident, illness or simply the effects of aging left you unable to tell your doctors what kind of medical treatment you want, or made it impossible to write checks to pay your monthly bills? No one likes to consider such possibilities, but the truth is that almost every family will face this kind of difficulty. Medical and financial powers of attorney can make life easier for you and your family if times get tough.
