Power of Attorney

Durable Power of Attorney

A Durable Power of Attorney gives another person (of your choice) the full legal authority to manage your financial affairs in the event that you are no longer able to make these decisions yourself. In the event of an unfortunate occurrence, this is an important document to ensure that your financial affairs will be taken care of in a way that is best for you.

A Durable Power of Attorney comes into affect only when you become incapacitated. This document allows an individual (again, of your choice) to sign your name on your behalf and manage all finances for any assets.

You can revise or revoke your Durable Power of Attorney at any time, as long as you are mentally competent, and a Durable Power of Attorney can take effect as soon as it is signed.
