Powers of Attorney - Make Copies
Every client signing I tell my clients the same thing. Now that you have powers of attorney, make sure you have copies on hand and filed when possible. Why? The paperwork is useless if it cannot be found. And, if all you have is the original, do you really want your agent to have to run to the copy center in the middle of a crisis? No, so get organized and hope you never need to use them. I always recommend putting POAs for Health on file with your doctor, specialist, and hospital as well as with each of your agents. POAs for finance will most likely not be help by financial institutions, so make a few copies for your file at home. You've take the time, and spent the money, on these forms. Make sure they will make a difference!
