Durable Power of Attorney: Medical and Financial Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney

Medical and Financial Powers of Attorney can simplify the tough decisions that you or your family can be faced with, in the case that you were to become ill, get into an accident, or experience the effects of aging. A Durable Power of Attorney (DPA) document allows whomever you appoint to act on your behalf to handle your medical or financial affairs in the case that you were to become incapacitated or are unable to care for yourself. These roles can include paying your bills, managing your investments, and even directing your medical treatment.


 It is worth the minimal effort to create these documents to prevent possible future legal complications from happening, like your family having to go to court to gain the rights to handle your affairs. It is advised that you create two separate documents for your health care issues and finances to be specific with all the contents of the documents, this will ensure that your health care and treatment wishes are met and that your financial assets are handled properly.
