Power of Attorney

Plans to take care of business, even when you can't.

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a written agreement that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your legal and financial affairs if you become unable to do so.

The Power of Attorney is obliged to act in your interests and can be revoked at any time.

Having a Power of Attorney will ensure a trusted “agent” will manage the practical, financial tasks that arise if you become incapacitated.

Some examples include:

  • Paying bills
  • Making bank deposits
  • Completing insurance and benefits paperwork
  • Managing property repairs
  • Managing investments
  • Handling taxes
