What can someone who has power of attorney do?
What someone can do with power of attorney depends on the type of POA they have:
Limited Power of Attorney: Delegate a specific task to an agent, granting them the authority they need to act on your behalf.
General Power of Attorney: Grant an agent the power to handle legal and health matters on your behalf, even before incapacitation occurs.
Durable Power of Attorney: Ensure your directives remain in effect, even if you become incapacitated. This comprehensive document provides long-lasting protection.
Springing Power of Attorney: Activate this authority only in the event of incapacitation, giving you peace of mind knowing that someone trusted will step in when needed.
