Whether you’re nearing retirement age, are a new parent, facing an chronic illness or any other life changing events, you can benefit from assigning powers of attorney. Powers of attorney authorize specific people, in specific circumstances, to make legal, financial and/or medical decisions on your behalf. This is helpful in case you become incapacitated or unreachable (for instance, deployed service members).
Circumstances can change, however, and the individuals to whom you originally assigned powers of attorney may not be the right choice anymore. Estrangements, death, long-distance moves and their own incapacity, may prevent them from serving your needs. Periodically reviewing and updating your powers of attorney ensures you will be always be protected.
