What Designating Power of Attorney Means for You

While you may not see an immediate need to designate power of attorney, life moments happen, and the time can arise sooner than we anticipate. Taking this critical step in life planning not only benefits you but is of great benefit to your family and loved ones. Designating a power of attorney is a legal document that allows a trusted individual of your choice to make decisions and address obligations on your behalf if you cannot do so due to an emergency or tragedy. This person can take care of your responsibilities, such as:

  • Keeping current on household bills
  • Ensuring taxes are filed
  • Paying for medical care
  • Handling legal or insurance claims
  • Managing real estate obligations
  • Making Medical Decisions

Safeguard You and Your Family With Power of Attorney

If you become incapacitated, family members may have to make decisions on your behalf if you are physically or mentally unable. When a person hasn’t been designated to make these decisions, it can lead to confusion, disagreement, and financial hardship. You could find yourself forced into an expensive uncomfortable guardianship proceeding where a judge, not you, will decide who makes decisions for you. Having a legal document clearly outlining who will be in charge of this, even if it is only temporary, means:

  • Your family will avoid long processes for decision making
  • You have a trusted family member making choices for your health and finances
  • There won’t be any costly guardianship or other court proceedings
