Powers of Attorney exist to help you if you're ever unable to make decisions for yourself. Specifically, a General Power of Attorney makes sure your financial and legal matters are handled by someone you trust if you become incapacitated and can't make decisions. Because a General Power of Attorney grants broad power to act, the person you designate will control your financial, health, legal and most other matters.
A General Power of Attorney allows you to appoint a trusted individual to care after your health or financial obligations, often over a broad period of time. If you wish to grant more limited or temporary powers, a Special Power of Attorney is more appropriate.
