Knowledge Center▸Power of Attorney
A power of attorney is a simple document giving another person (called an “agent”) the legal authority to act on your behalf. The extent of the power you grant the other can be limited—it’s up to you. It is used in matters of legal significance, such as in financial dealings and health care matters. It can help avoid going through a guardianship proceeding in the event you or a family member become incapacitated. Learn more about powers of attorney in general, financial power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and more.
