Congratulations! You've made your first step in securing your future. By making a Durable Power of Attorney you are appointing a family member, friend, or someone else to be your legal representative if you become incapable of managing your affairs yourself. If you become incapacitated without having appointed someone, your life may be dramatically and negatively impacted by such simple things as missing your car payment or being unable to arrange for payment of medical expenses.
The powers that you grant your representative can be as broad or as narrow as you want. Typically, they will involve items such as being able to access your finances; otherwise deal with your assets (such as selling your car for you); and collect benefits such as Medicaid or insurance on your behalf.
You never know what tomorrow brings - protect yourself today!
