Power of Attorney

Central Florida Power of Attorney

Central Florida Power of Attorney

A power of attorney (POA) is a written document that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your affairs on your behalf if you leave the country or if you become mentally or physically incapable of managing your own affairs. Powers that could be granted to an attorney-in-fact include: handling financial and business transactions, buying life insurance, settling claims, operating business interests, and employing professional help. A general power of attorney is often included in an estate plan to make sure someone can handle financial matters.

Types of Powers of Attorney

You can specify exactly what powers an agent may exercise based on your own personal situation; a health care power of attorney and a durable power of attorney are an example. A health care power of attorney grants your agent authority to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unconscious, mentally incompetent, or otherwise unable to make decisions on your own. On the other hand, if you become mentally incompetent due to illness or accident while you have a power of attorney in effect, you can keep your document valid by signing a durable power of attorney. This is simply a POA that has a durability provision to keep the current power of attorney in effect.
