Having a detailed, comprehensive Power of Attorney ensures your preferences are honored should you become incapacitated and unable to take care of your finances yourself. This document gives the person you name, called an Agent or Attorney‐in‐Fact, the authority to sign legal documents for you and to handle your finances. The “Durable” part of a Power of Attorney means that the document remains effective even after you become incapacitated.
Beware, not all Powers of Attorney are created equal. It is important that you explain your particular needs to your Attorney so the appropriate language can be included in your Power of Attorney. If you don’t, you run the risk that your Power of Attorney won’t work for what you want when you need it.
