What Is Power of Attorney?
Power of attorney involves granting another person, persons, or party the authority to act in service of the legal and financial matters of another. It can also be a term in reference to a legal document granting the power of attorney to someone. Utilizing a power of attorney ensures that if the concerned party were to become incapacitated or incapable of normal reason, the assets of that person would remain secure and all legal obligations would continue to be met. During the creation of a POA document, carefully managed stipulations and terms must be followed, which makes the initial drafting and enacting of a power of attorney document incredibly important.
Power of attorney can be used to grant the ability of another party to handle:
- Managing daily expenses
- Transferring assets to a trust
- Matters of financial investment
- The collection of income
- Handling annual taxes
- Asset and property claims pertaining to inheritance
- Managing transitions with financial firms
- Purchasing insurance policies for you
- And considerably more
