Power of attorney (POA) is the legal authority to make decisions on someone else’s behalf. It’s also the name of the document that gives this authority.
You should use a power of attorney form if you will be temporarily unable to make important financial choices or actions (such as paying your bills), or if your health is declining and you’re concerned you may be medically incapable of making your own decisions.
