A durable power of attorney is a legal document which allows you to designate a person to act on your behalf if you are unable to make important decisions for yourself. A durable power of attorney is considered a basic component of any comprehensive estate plan, and can protect you and your family, especially if you have non-traditional relationships or family structures. There are both financial and medical powers of attorney, and you can choose the same, or different, people to fulfill these roles. A medical power of attorney will allow your healthcare surrogate to be able to make decisions regarding your healthcare, should you become seriously ill or incapacitated, while a financial power of attorney allows someone to make decisions regarding your bank accounts and other assets.
