Why you need a power of attorney (POA)

To speak for you when you can't

If you're unable to handle your financial affairs for whatever reason, a POA allows you to designate someone you trust to ensure your wishes are followed.

For your friends and family

Allow your loved ones to take care of your finances without having to deal with court proceedings.

For your peace of mind

Living overseas for an extended period of time, or getting sick can already be a challenge. Ease your mind by knowing that your assets and finances will be taken care of by someone you trust.

Get answers to common questions Answers to common questions

When will my durable power of attorney take effect?

You can choose to have it take effect immediately. Or it can be a "springing" power of attorney that kicks in only if you become incapacitated.

Is a durable power of attorney revocable?

Yes, you can revoke it whenever you want, as long as you're mentally capable.

How much power can I grant through a POA?

Generally, you can permit your agent to make all your financial decisions. Or you can limit their powers to certain ones.

Is it state-specific?

Yes, and most states recognize powers of attorney signed in other states. But it may be a good idea to get a new one when you move.

What actions can my attorney-in-fact perform?

A power of attorney lets your agent do any or all of these tasks:

  • Pay for support and care
  • Borrow money
  • Conduct banking transactions
  • Manage property
  • Handle legal claims
  • Access safe deposit boxes
  • Deal with insurance and retirement benefits
  • Exercise stockholder rights
  • Contract for services
  • Make gifts
  • Collect social security benefits
  • Any other task you need, allowed by law
