Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney?
A power of attorney acts as a fill-in when the unexpected occurs. You may sustain injuries that leave you temporarily or permanently incapacitated. Or a new work assignment sends you to Asia for a few months. In these circumstances, you need someone to manage the homefront for you until you can address these issues yourself.
If your chances of disability or unavailability are higher than average, a power of attorney becomes critical. These situations may include:
- Service in the armed forces
- Chronic or terminal health conditions
- Workplace hazards, including exposure to dangerous conditions or toxic substances
- Frequent travel abroad, especially to war zones
- Short-term need for someone to fill in for you on a transaction, including real estate closings, business purchases, or personal matters.
If you do not have a power of attorney, you will have no one authorized to make bank deposits, pay your mortgage, provide family support, or manage other affairs. In cases of mental incapacity, your loved ones may need to pursue a conservatorship. The court will appoint a conservator to manage your assets, and there is no guarantee that this person would be your first choice for the role or knowledgeable about your financial or legal matters. A power of attorney offers you this protection without costing additional stress or money.
