Understanding Power of Attorney

Has someone “given you” authority under a power of attorney?

An enduring power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that gives a person the authority to stand in place of someone else and manage their affairs either financially, for personal care or both. A POA can let a person choose who they want to manage their affairs if they become unable to do so.  Download our free brochure to learn more about the role and some responsibilities when acting on authority granted under a power of attorney for financial matters.
