Powers of Attorney, Joint Bank Accounts, Representation Agreements, and Advanced Directives is the second of the “Life Matters” soup and buns workshop series. This deals mostly with financial, health and personal instructions.
If you are concerned on how to manage your money, property, and finances as you grow older or as life takes on certain changes. It is always a good idea to be prepared for the time when you may need help managing your affairs.
Powers of attorney and joint bank accounts are two tools that are often used to managed one’s financial affairs. It is important to note however, that there are risks and advantages to both.
Financial Matters is not the only thing that you should think of. The question of your health and personal care decisions should be taken deep consideration too.
A representation agreement allows the person you elect as your representative to make personal and health care decisions for you.
An advance directive ensures that your wishes are followed in the event that you cannot personally communicate with your doctor or representative as in the case of serious medical condition.
