How to choose the right power of attorney

| Jan 25, 2017 | Powers Of Attorney |

When you are working on your estate planning, it is important to choose the right power of attorney. The power of attorney’s job and responsibility is to work on your behalf and make every effort to know you well enough to make decisions that you would have made, if you are in a condition where you cannot communicate or make your wishes known. This is especially important in terms of your living will, which documents your health care wishes if you become incapacitated.

These situations are unique for everyone, so it is important that you learn enough about the law and how living wills work and what you need to expect from your power of attorney. Doing so will assure that have no questions or worries about your future.

You must also fully trust this person, as he or she will be making decisions on your behalf. The power of attorney’s say overrides that of the rest of your friends and family. You have specifically assigned this person to speak for you.
