Power of Attorney
You write an enduring power of attorney at a time when you are capable of making your own decisions. It’s a legal document that lets you choose someone, usually a family member or trusted friend, to make financial decisions for you. This person is called your attorney. Although this word is often used to describe a lawyer, it has a different meaning here.
There are two options for writing a Enduring Power of Attorney
- Your attorney starts making decisions immediately. You and your attorney have control over the money – you can both write cheques, sign documents, etc. If, in the future, you can’t make decisions because you are ill or injured, your attorney takes over – they make the decisions.
- Your attorney doesn’t make financial decisions for you until, sometime in the future, you can’t make decisions because you are ill or injured. This arrangement is sometimes called a springing power of attorney because it springs into effect when you become incapable. If you get better, you can take back the power to make your own decisions.
