A power of attorney is like a contingency plan in case there comes a time when you
are no longer able to handle your financial affairs on your own. It appoints an agent
to handle your financial affairs and gives that person direction for how you want
your finances handled should you be unable to do so. It is a good idea for everyone
who makes financial decisions that affects others to have a power of attorney, and
it is important to make sure that this is done accurately and effectively.

Financial Durable Power of Attorney
The power of attorney for financial management may be very general and grant the
agent broad authority, or the principal may limit the agent's authority specifically
in the instrument creating it. Your Power of Attorney may allow your agent to make
your mortgage payments, collect money due to you and deposit it in your bank account,
pay your bills, and even keeping your business running. These can be extremely powerful
documents and great care should be exercised in their use.
