Chapter 16. End-Of-Life Issues > Durable Power of Attorney

Durable Power of Attorney

Durable Powers of Attorney are discussed in more detail earlier in this book in Chapter 3. If you have a Springing Durable Power of Attorney, one that does not come into effect until your incapacity, you may wish to have that Durable Power of Attorney changed to become immediately effective. You should also review your Durable Power of Attorney as to any limitations you may or may not wish to place on the person you appoint to make financial decisions on your behalf. In particular, you may wish to revisit any provisions within your Durable Power of Attorney that authorize your attorney-in-fact (who does not have to be a lawyer, but merely your agent) to make gifts. You also may wish to take the lead yourself in making gifts while you are alive and able to enjoy seeing people appreciate your generosity.
