The financial Power of Attorney provided by the Safewill Platform is an Enduring Power of Attorney. This means the power granted under the document continues after you lose decision-making capacity.
There is another type of financial Power of Attorney called a General Power of Attorney. Under this document, you can appoint financial decision-makers to act on your behalf immediately, or on the occurrence of specific events. However, the power granted comes to an end if you lose mental capacity.
A General Power of Attorney is typically used if someone is temporarily unable to make decisions due to ill health or travel.
Safewill does not offer this General Power of Attorney.
