What is an Enduring Power of Attorney?


An Enduring Power of Attorney authorises a person or persons to act on your behalf in relation to your financial and personal matters. This authority will continue if and when you are unable to make these decisions until a time specified in your Power of Attorney or upon your death.

For example: If you have been diagnosed with an illness which will, in the future, render you incapable of making decisions for yourself an enduring power of attorney could be used to appoint someone to act on your behalf when you no longer have capacity to make decisions on your own.
