Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney (POA) in New York?

A power of attorney is part of estate planning that is important for anyone who wants assurances that their financial needs will be met. It is necessary if you want someone to manage your property or finances when you become unable to make decisions for yourself.

A POA is not only helpful when you are incapacitated. You can also use one when you are healthy but want someone to manage specific types of finances or transactions.

A health care proxy is like a power of attorney, but it is only for medical and health care. You should have one if you want a close friend or family member to make decisions for you when you cannot do so.
