June 2018 – Having a properly drafted enduring Power of Attorney (POA) is an important document that most consider an integral part of their Estate Planning.  It allows you to appoint someone to make financial decisions for you if you are unable to do this for yourself (as a result of an accident, travel, incapacity, etc).  Beware of the inadvertent revocation of a POA if you sign your Bank’s own POA document.
