Power Of Attorney, Simple

Power of Attorney, Simple

 

A power of attorney allows someone to appoint a person or an organization to handle his or her affairs while he/she is unavailable or unable to do so. He or she can appoint an “Attorney-in-Fact” or an “Agent” whoever he/she prefers.The individual determines the amount power given to the “Attorney-in-Fact” or “Agent”. Regardless of the type of power of attorney granted to the person, the attorney-in-fact is responsible for keeping accurate records of all transactions that he or she makes on behalf of the individual who gave the power of attorney.

The power an Attorney-in-Fact can make includes the following:

  • Make financial decisions
  • Make gifts of money
  • Make health care decisions, including the ability to consent to giving, withholding, or stopping medical treatments, services, or diagnostic procedures. The individual can also make a separate power of attorney with regards to health care if he/she wishes to.
  • Recommend a guardian
  • Maintaining and operating business interests
  • Employing professional assistance

 

The “Attorney-in-fact” can be a spouse, relative, or a trusted person by the individual because the power of attorney is not regulated or monitored by the court system that is why a misuse of power can occur.

 

The said power of attorney is very simple yet very powerful because it has a specific time period depending on the agreement of the individual and the “Agent”. The power of attorney is also very important because there is an automatic termination date at the end of the period but the individual has to make sure to limit the time period for protection purposes. We always have to remember that the Power of Attorney can be renewed anytime as long as the time period has ended. So, remember to appoint a power of attorney whenever you are not around.
