A Power of Attorney form allows you to appoint another person to act on your behalf should you ever require someone to make short- or long-term decisions for you.
When you need a little help making big medical or financial decisions, a Power of Attorney form (also known as a POA form) allows you to give permission to another person or entity (your agent) to act on your behalf.
Your appointed agent does not have to be a lawyer, and their power is defined entirely by you. A Power of Attorney form can be general, granting broad authority over all of your medical and financial affairs, or it may be limited, giving your agent a defined set of responsibilities only in certain situations.
Instances where a Power of Attorney form would be necessary may include emergency situations where you are incapacitated and cannot make medical or financial decisions on your own. A POA legally protects your financial and health-related interests that would otherwise be appointed in court.
