Different Types Of Power Of Attorney

Depending on the issues you think you may encounter, these types of powers of attorney can help you in different situations:

  • Financial power of attorney: Lets you appoint an agent to manage your finances, including your bank accounts, investment portfolios, and taxes, should you become unable to handle these matters yourself.
  • Medical power of attorney: Lets you appoint someone to make crucial decisions surrounding your health care needs if you become incapacitated. The agent you select can decide what prescriptions to take, what surgeries you can get, and what other medical treatment you can receive.

While these are the two most common types of power of attorney, there are subsects of both that can help you address your specific medical or financial needs. To learn more about these options, call us at 724-271-8300 so we can learn more about your situation.
