What is the Difference Between a Power of Attorney and a Healthcare Proxy?
A Power of Attorney allows you to have continuity in financial decision making by empowering your agent to manage your financial affair in the event that you are unable. This can apply to various financial transactions, banking, insurance payments, and more.
A Healthcare Proxy, on the other hand, allows you to have continuity in healthcare decision making. A Healthcare Proxy gives your agent the authority to make health-related decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make them for yourself.
While legally speaking, you don’t necessarily need your own legal counsel to draft a Power of Attorney, you must be mindful that the validity of the Power of Attorney depends on it being in full compliance with the statutory requirement of the law. Failure to follow the exact specification of the law will result in the Power of Attorney not being accepted — putting your financial wishes at risk.
To ensure that your Power of Attorney is fully authorized in case of unexpected illness or the inability to make decisions on your own, contact our team at Vernon & Associates, P.C. today.
