Financial Power of Attorney
A power of attorney document comes in two kinds: medical power of attorney and financial power of attorney. The two are similar, but there are some differences.
A financial power of attorney gives someone the power to make financial decisions for you. Therefore, they can buy or sell assets and make investments. Usually, this person is a close relative or trusted friend. However, it could be anybody, including a lawyer. Therefore, it’s important to pick the right person to serve as your agent. A financial power of attorney can come in two types: general and durable. The key difference there is that a durable power of attorney will continue to work after you die.
A medical power of attorney is different from a financial power attorney. Instead of finances, it covers medical issues. In other words, medical power of attorney allows someone to make medical decisions on your behalf. As a result, they can make serious medical decisions. For example, they can decide whether or not to resuscitate you. Therefore, it’s even more important to make sure your agent is a close family member or a personal friend.
