Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney?

A power of attorney provides backup if you cannot make financial or healthcare decisions for yourself. If an accident or illness leaves you incapacitated, your loved ones may need to petition the court for a conservatorship. You can avoid this scenario by executing a power of attorney.

Besides offering reassurance for these just-in-case scenarios, there are specific situations that make powers of attorney more critical. If you face any of these circumstances, a power of attorney is an effective fail-safe:

  • Chronic or terminal illness
  • Deployed in the armed services
  • Travel abroad frequently due to personal or work commitments
  • Hazardous work conditions and exposure to toxic chemicals

Under a conservatorship, the court appoints someone to manage your affairs for you. There is no guarantee that the conservator will be your first choice for this role or that they will handle matters consistent with your wishes. It is easier, and often less expensive, to execute a power of attorney and plan all of this ahead of time.
