There may be a time in your life when you’re unable to manage your financial affairs or personal welfare, owing to some form of incapacity. If this happens, you will want someone you trust ready to act immediately on your behalf rather than the alternative of having to rely on a lengthy and complex court process to be completed.
Even when we’re young, we can find ourselves incapacitated through illness or injury and it can be invaluable having a reliable person to trust to manage our affairs and remove the anxiety of having unpaid bills, at a time when you most need peace of mind.
Creating an Attorney in advance ensures that if the worst were to happen, you can rest assured that both your financial affairs and personal welfare are in safe hands.
You can appoint a relative or close friend as your Attorney, which will allow them to act on your behalf when the time comes.
