Enduring Power of Attorney
It is crucial to appoint someone, while you are still mentally capable, to look after your financial and legal affairs and act on your behalf if necessary. You can do this by making an Enduring Power of Attorney. Your Enduring Power of Attorney will allow the person you select to conduct transactions on your behalf while you are unable to.
An appointed ‘attorney’ can be given authorization to perform tasks and fulfill obligations related to your financial affairs, such as banking and investments, as well as managing and maintaining real property.
Power of Attorney is not just for seniors or those in end-of-life care. Appropriate planning can offer protection in the event of a physical accident or medical emergency.
