What is a Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows a person (principal) to appoint a another person (agent) to act for them should they become incapacitated. The agent is expected to place the principal's interests ahead of his or her own, which is why it is important for you and your loved one to pick a trusted individual. There are multiple types of decisions that the agent can be given the power to make, including the power to:

  • Make financial decisions
  • Make gifts of money
  • Make healthcare decisions, including the ability to consent to giving, withholding, or stopping medical treatments, services, or diagnostic procedures. (Note: your loved one can also make a separate “health care power of attorney” to give only this power to another individual.)
  • Recommend a guardian

 

There are four kinds of Power of Attorney

General Power of Attorney. In this situation, the agent can perform almost any act as the principal, such as opening financial accounts and managing personal finances. A general power of attorney arrangement is terminated when the principal becomes incapacitated, revokes the power of attorney or passes away. 

Durable Power of Attorney. This arrangement designates another person to act on the principal’s behalf and includes a durable clause that maintains the power of attorney after the principal becomes incapacitated. 

Special or Limited Power of Attorney. In this instance, the agent has specific powers limited to a certain area. An example is a power of attorney that grants the agent authority to sell a home or other piece of real estate. 

Springing Durable Power of Attorney. In some states and territories, a “springing” power of attorney is available and becomes effective when a specified event occurs such as when the principal becomes incapacitated.
