Power of Attorney FAQs

How much decision-making authority can I grant through a power of attorney?

Generally, you can grant authority to make any or all of your financial decisions (e.g., those related to banking, accounts, insurance, taxes, real estate, etc.). You can choose which powers you want to grant, with one significant exception. You cannot authorize your attorney-in-fact to make changes to your last will.
