Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney in Vermont?
A durable power of attorney dictates your wishes during unexpected times. You may be in an accident that renders you permanently or temporarily incapacitated. Or your workplace may send you to their Paris office for three months. In both these cases, a power of attorney allows your daily affairs (like depositing checks at financial institutions or paying your mortgage) to continue despite your unavailability.
Many people execute a power of attorney because their chances of disabling injury or unavailability are higher than average. These circumstances include:
- Recent diagnosis of a chronic or terminal condition
- Service in the armed forces
- Work involves exposure to hazardous conditions or dangerous chemicals
- Frequent travel abroad for work or personal reasons
Without a power of attorney, there is no one to manage your routine transactions, like banking, paying bills, providing family support, or managing real estate. If you become incapacitated and are no longer of sound mind, the impacts are even more serious. Your loved ones will need to file a court proceeding for a conservatorship to manage your assets. There is no guarantee that the court will choose a conservator who is your first choice, and the long process is often expensive. A power of attorney offers you this protection when the worst happens and does so for less stress and money.
