Protect Your Wishes with a Power of Attorney: (407) 439-2822

Even if you are healthy and well at the time you create your estate plan, it is important to consider the possibility of a serious accident or health emergency leaving you incapacitated. Naming a power of attorney gives one person (known as the agent) the power to act on your behalf should you become unable to make decisions regarding your own life. At Levy & Associates P.A., we can help guide you through the process of naming a power of attorney and explain the various options available to you.

Financial vs. Healthcare Power of Attorney

When you establish a power of attorney, you are choosing the person you trust to handle important decisions regarding your finances and health care. This person is legally allowed to act on your behalf as a fiduciary. You will be able to choose exactly what types of decisions the agent can make based on the type of power of attorney you establish. Failing to do so means decisions about your medical care or finances could be left in unfamiliar hands.

Two common power of attorney documents include:

  • Healthcare Power of Attorney: Allows someone you trust, also known as an agent, to make medical decisions on your behalf. Is also known as a Medical Power of Attorney or Designation of Health Care Surrogate in Florida.
  • Financial Power of Attorney: Allows your chosen agent to make financial decisions and transactions for you. This type of PoA could allow for total control over your finances or more limited control, depending on your situation.

Another aspect of your decision is establishing how long the power of attorney will be in effect. A non-durable power of attorney is limited and only goes into effect if you become incapacitated. A durable power of attorney remains in effect.
