Essential estate plans to ensure life’s fundamentals: enduring powers of attorney and guardian

If you become unable to manage your affairs, who will manage your financial or personal affairs on your behalf? Unless appointed by a tribunal, your family may be unable to administer essential duties, such as paying bills, making decisions about your medical care, or fulfilling their day-to-day needs.

By having Enduring Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship documents in place, you can easily transfer your authority.

Transfer your legal authority in
case you can’t act independently

A Power of Attorney, Enduring Guardianship and Advance Care Directive are essential documents in your estate planning portfolio. These documents put in place legal authority for the person you nominate to continue making decisions on your behalf.

An Enduring Power of Attorney transfers your authority so that a person of your choice can sign cheques, withdraw or deposit money, buy or sell real estate, enter legal agreements and more. 

Enduring Guardianship and Advance Care Directives are other documents where you can appoint someone to make decisions about where you should live, what healthcare should be provided and what treatments you may need should you become temporarily or permanently incapacitated. 

Together, these documents work to keep things as normal as possible if incapacity arises.

Now is the best time to ensure the future is a smooth and easy process for your family to continue your affairs if you become unable to do so. Get peace of mind today.
