Why you should think about having a Lasting Power of Attorney
If you are concerned about losing the ability to manage your finances or about who will make decisions about your welfare in later life, you could think about making a Lasting Power of Attorney.
This is a legal document that allows you to plan what should happen to you and who would be able to make decisions on your behalf, if you become unable to make decisions for yourself in the future.
Putting a Lasting Power of Attorney in place offers added security for you and your family and lets you decide what should happen if at some point in the future you cannot deal with your own affairs.
You can give instructions on what should happen to your money and your property and by putting a Lasting Power of Attorney in place you can provide a great deal of reassurance for your loved ones.
