Delegate Decision-Making Authority with a Power of Attorney

Sudden illness or injury can leave anyone incapacitated. Or, the infirmities of age can compromise a senior’s ability to cognitively function independently. Under such circumstances, concerned loved ones may feel compelled to act but lack the legal authority. To protect your loved ones, you need legal authority to make financial decisions with a Power of Attorney. 

In Florida, a Power of Attorney (POA) is a vital legal tool that allows you to designate a trusted individual to act on your behalf. Whether traveling, facing an extended absence or illness, or simply wanting assistance, a Power of Attorney provides peace of mind and protects your interests.

Who Needs a Power of Attorney?

  • Seniors: Older adults may benefit from a trusted loved one overseeing their financial affairs, especially if they have financial assets like stocks, bonds, or royalties that require management. Having someone oversee finances can provide security and protection against potential scams.
  • Small Business Owners: Small business owners often have a central role in the daily operations of their companies. A Power of Attorney allows them to designate a trusted individual to act on their behalf If they are temporarily or permanently unavailable due to travel, illness, or other commitments,. It ensures that critical business decisions are made and transactions can proceed without interruption.
  • Military Personnel:  Deployments can pose challenges in managing financial and legal affairs back home. Military personnel can be deployed to locations worldwide, sometimes on short notice. A  Power of Attorney empowers an individual to represent their interests and make decisions.
  • Students Studying Abroad: Students may need someone to manage their financial accounts, investments, or assets in their home state. A Power of Attorney authorizes a designated person to handle these responsibilities and family-related matters.
  • Young Adults:  Life is unpredictable. Accidents and illnesses can strike at any time, regardless of age. In addition, a Power of Attorney can enable a parent of a child over 18 to pay their tuition or other bills, access their bank accounts, or assist in any other financial matters.
