Now you can have one! The person you appoint to take care of your finances is officially your agent.Hereโ€™s all you need to know about financial POA.How does a financial power of attorney work? Financial POA allows your agent to manage all of your finances when you are not physically or mentally able to do so on your own.As much as you might think it should be otherwise, your finances wonโ€™t freeze just because youโ€™re laid up in bed. Those bills will keep on coming! But if youโ€™ve appointed someone to be your financial double, you wonโ€™t have to worry about your finances when you canโ€™t manage them on your own.What can a financial POA do?Well, that depends on how much permission you grant them.This can include the following powers:Make financial decisionsManage your accounts and investmentsManage your propertyPay your billsPay your taxesSell your assetsWhen does a POA become effective?Again, this depends on your personal choice.You might prefer to have your POA become effective as soon you both sign the document. Maybe you travel often and you want someone to be on hand to make financial decisions when youโ€™re out of town. Or, you might want your POA to become effective only if, and when, you are incapacitated for whatever reason. Just make sure to put that in the document.In some states, though, you wonโ€™t have a choice: your POA will automatically become effective if you become incapacitated.When does a POA end? Once you and the agent sign the POA, itโ€™s binding until death unless one of the following occur:You revoke it.A court invalidates it.The agent canโ€™t represent you.You become incapacitated and your POA does not continue after incapacity.What can happen if you donโ€™t appoint a POA? If you donโ€™t appoint a POA, your finances will automatically revert to the state if you become incapacitated.If this happens, your family will need to go through the courts to regain control of your assets.It will be a long, expensive battle that can easily be avoided with one magic document: a POA.Your Turn: Have you drafted a POA? Tell us about it in the comments.
