Financial Power of Attorney

Similar to the Healthcare Power of Attorney, the Financial Power of Attorney outlines who you want to make your financial decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated. If you do not have this, nobody will have the authority to pay your mortgage or your car bill or your credit card balance or utilities, etc., etc. So while you are unable to take care of your financial responsibilities, you should assign someone to sign checks and pay bills on your behalf.

It’s easiest to get at the same time as your will. Depending on your comfort of having your parents or spouse make all medical decisions for you, immediately.
