Power of Attorney
1) What does a power of attorney do for me?
In the event of your incapacitation, the agent acts on your behalf on various legal, financial and/or healthcare matters, as outlined in your agreement.
2) Why is it important to have an attorney-in-fact?
If you have not specified who will be your agent, you risk not having your wishes carried out upon your incapacitation. This could lead to some stressful and unnecessary legal battles, during which you will not be able to specify your actual wishes. Rather than having your loved ones argue in court about what you would have wanted, you can clearly specify your wishes and have someone act and make decisions for you.
3) To whom should I assign power of attorney?
You should only assign power of attorney to someone who has your full trust. Choose a relative, friend or attorney who you feel confident will look out for your best interests in all circumstances—especially when you are most vulnerable.
