Guide to Enduring Power of Attorney
There are circumstances in life where individuals find themselves unable to manage their own affairs. In the event that you become incapable of handling your affairs due to mental or physical incapacity, an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) grants you the ability to designate one or more trusted attorneys who can assist in managing your affairs on your behalf.
By establishing an Enduring Power of Attorney, you are effectively entrusting a person or persons to make decisions and handle your affairs during periods of incapacity.
It is important to note that Enduring Powers of Attorney are not limited by age. Any individual over the age of 18 has the ability to create one, and individuals of the same age or older can be nominated as attorneys. There is no requirement for you to be currently unwell or incapacitated in order to initiate an Enduring Power of Attorney.
The primary principle governing an Enduring Power of Attorney is that your chosen attorney must always act in your best interests.
What are the two types of Enduring or Lasting Power of Attorney?
There are two distinct types of powers granted to an attorney: property and financial affairs, and health and welfare. It is important to clarify that attorneys are not permitted to make changes to your will.
Lasting Power of Attorney for Property & Financial Affairs
This empowers your attorney to handle tasks such as bill payments, managing bank accounts and investments, arranging and collecting benefits, and even conducting property sales on your behalf.
Lasting Power of Attorney for Health & Welfare
This enables your attorney to make decisions pertaining to your care, place of residence, and to give or withhold consent for life-sustaining treatment, among other health-related matters.
