Medical Power of Attorney
Statutory Durable Power of Attorney
The Statutory Durable Power of Attorney is a legal financial document that allows you to let someone pay your bills, make sure you’re taken care of or deal with insurance at the hospital. This document will help prevent guardianship and court involvement.
There are normally two options when signing the Statutory Durable POA, either effective immediately or upon incapacity.
“Today, I would always recommend that you do it effective immediately just in case.” Hegwood said.
Both of these Power of Attorneys will help you avoid guardianship and probate court. It’s not a fast process, so getting these documents in place now can save you time, stress and money.
