What is an Enduring Power of Attorney

It  is a very sad fact that one in five of us will lose mental capacity at some stage in life. An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document that enables you to give legal authority to a person or

persons whom you trust, 

called Attorneys, to manage your

financial affairs on your behalf, 

when you are not in a position to 

do so yourself, for example

following an accident, stroke or 

the onset of dementia.

It is important to remember that the completion of a EPOA in no way 

precludes you from dealing with your own affairs for as long as you are able to do so, but if that day should ever come your nominated Attorneys could 

take over your affairs easily and quickly without the need to go to court for the appointment of a receiver. Having to go to court can be time consuming and more costly, with additional annual costs to report to the court. Taking out the EPOA now while you have capacity is the smart thing to do.
