Common questions

A power of attorney is a document in which you can appoint someone to make decisions for you and perform certain transactions that you authorize in the document. A power of attorney terminates automatically at the death of the principal.

There are a few important terms you need to know to understand a power of attorney. The person granting the authority is referred to as the "principal" or "grantor." The person that the principal appoints is called the "agent" or "attorney-in-fact". Also, if a power of attorney is "durable", it remains in effect if the principal becomes mentally incapacitated.

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

Yes, you will have access to your accounts even if you sign a power of attorney unless it is determined that you are no longer mentally competent.

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

Generally, you can permit your agent to make all your financial decisions, or you can limit his or her authority to specific decisions or decisions within certain categories.

Yes, but many financial institutions recognize powers of attorney properly signed in other states. But it is generally a good idea to get a new one when you move.

You're steps away from peace of mind

Whether you're traveling or preparing for the unexpected, a power of attorney can help protect you and your finances.
