Power of Attorney

Another important estate planning vehicle is a Power of Attorney. Simply put, this document allows you to name someone (and an alternate) to handle your finances if you become incapacitated. I will need the exact names and addresses of the people you want to handle this task. A recent law change allows you to name someone to "monitor" your agent to be sure that he or she is following your wishes or acting in your best interests.
