Enduring Powers of Attorney explained at free event
THE Seniors Legal and Support Service will conduct free public information seminars on Enduring Powers of Attorney in Hervey Bay and Maryborough.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document which gives someone the legal power to act on your behalf in relation to personal, health and financial matters.
It is a powerful document and if care is not taken in choosing an Attorney and inserting appropriate limitations in the document, people can find themselves without a home and money due to the actions of a loved one.
Equally, it can be a very useful document to enable someone to make decisions and give instructions to banks and health providers when an individual is not able to do so due to illness or incapacity.
We often find when someone's health is failing one of the first thing service providers will ask for is whether the person has an Enduring Power of Attorney.
When to make an Enduring Power of Attorney, what to put in it, how does it work and what can my Attorney do are all questions that the Seniors Legal and Support Service deal with practically every day.
To help people understand why they might need an EPA and to explain its use and operation,
The Seniors Legal and Support Service will be conducting free public information seminars between 10-11am on Wednesday, March 8, at the Hervey Bay Library and Monday, March 27, at the Maryborough Library.
