Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney allows you to designate a person to act as your agent. Selecting the person who will serve as your agent is an important decision. There are two types of powers of attorney. They are two separate documents and they serve two very different purposes, they are:

  • Financial power of attorney. (Sometimes referred to as a "business power of attorney")
  • Medical power of attorney. (Sometimes referred to as a "durable health care power of attorney")

We'll answer the following questions:

  • What is a financial power of attorney?
  • What is a medical power of attorney?
  • What is the difference between the two kinds of powers of attorney?
  • Do you need both kinds of power of attorney?
  • If you have a living will, do you need a medical power of attorney?
  • What makes a power of attorney "durable"?
  • Can a family member act as your agent under a power of attorney?
  • Can your agent make gifts?
  • Can your power of attorney be revoked?
