The Benefits Of A Power Of Attorney

To better understand the beneficial power of attorney, you must first know what you lose by not having one. No one plans on being incapacitated or seriously injured. But if it happens, we have loved ones and family members to take care of us, to talk to the doctors on our behalf, to pay the mortgage on our homes. 

Though you may have several people eager and willing to take care of and support you, they may not have the ability to do so. Suppose you are over the age of 18 and become incapacitated. In that case, your friends and family cannot make medical or financial decisions for you—unless you have given them power of attorney. Otherwise, they are forced to petition a probate court to obtain guardianship (medical decisions) or conservatorship (financial decisions).

A New View On Estate Planning

When people think of estate planning, they commonly associate it with something only wealthy people do (e.g., trusts), or death and dying. The overlooked benefit is that it is a powerful tool for someone to use if they cannot make decisions for themselves.

In addition to the above, there are other circumstances in which estate planning can benefit you and your spouse while you are still alive and in good health. For example, imagine if you and your spouse are looking to buy a property in another state. Maybe one of you needs to stay back with the kids or cannot get the time off of work. If you and your spouse have created a financial power of attorney, they can sign for you at the closing table...
