Completing an Enduring Power of Attorney for your financial and personal matters is a very practical approach to ensuring these matters are adequately taken care of instances in which you are unable to take care of them yourself.
There can often be some confusion between the difference in a Will and an Enduring Power of Attorney. A Will deals with you assets and property after you have unfortunately passed. Alternatively, an Enduring Power of Attorney is a document which is used whilst you are still alive, but unable to manage or deal with your assets of lifestyle choices.
You may be unable to manage these things due to mental incapacity, or due to another reason, such as being overseas for an extended period of time. It is up to you when you decide to have another person or persons deal with your assets and lifestyle choices.
