Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney?
One reason you may require a power of attorney is incapacity. If you are unconscious or unavailability, no one can manage business assets or bank accounts listed only in your name. You must appoint someone to handle those items for you should you become incapacitated.
That can happen through a power of attorney or a conservatorship. However, while a power of attorney is a quick form that is easy to complete and execute, appointing a conservator is a more extended matter that requires probate court intervention. That process is often harrowing for loved ones and business partners.
You also might want a power of attorney if you face hazards or long periods of unavailability. Such circumstances may include:
- Recent diagnosis of a terminal or chronic medical condition
- Military servicemember facing imminent deployment
- Frequent travel abroad due to work or personal commitments
- Regular exposure to hazardous conditions or dangerous chemicals
- Need for short-term assistance with one transaction, e.g., closing on real estate, transferring a car title, or making a significant business purchase
