If you become sick or disabled, either temporarily or permanently, who will make decisions for you?
- A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint someone you trust to handle your affairs if you cannot do so.
- If you cannot pay bills, get records or make other decisions, your family will be prevented from helping you get treatment, pay doctors or for Medicare.
- Without a Power of Attorney, your family may have to file a petition to seek conservatorship of the disabled person. This process involves the Court, several lawyers and usually at least $5,000 to $7,000. A Power of Attorney costs much less and does not involve the Court.
- It is important that you give your family the tools to help you if you cannot help yourself.
