Let's talk about Powers of Attorney

What is a Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your affairs if you become unable to do so. The person or organization you choose, known as your "agent" or "attorney-in-fact," will be able to make decisions on your behalf, such as handling your financial matters, making healthcare decisions, or entering into legal agreements. It's an essential tool in estate planning, ensuring your desires are fulfilled when you're unable to act on your own.
What are the different types of Power of Attorney?
In Utah, there are generally four types of Power of Attorney: General, Durable, Special (or Limited), and Medical. A General POA gives broad powers to your agent to act in your stead. A Durable POA remains in effect even if you become incapacitated. A Special or Limited POA is for one-time or specific transactions. A Medical POA, also known as a healthcare power of attorney, allows your agent to make medical decisions on your behalf. Each type serves different purposes and can be tailored to suit individual needs.
When does a Power of Attorney become effective?
A Power of Attorney becomes effective as soon as it is signed and notarized, unless specified otherwise in the document. Some people choose to have a "springing" Power of Attorney that only becomes effective under certain conditions, typically when the principal becomes incapacitated. In such cases, the document will detail the specific circumstances under which the Power of Attorney springs into effect. It's important to understand these conditions and ensure they are clearly defined in the document.
Can a Power of Attorney be revoked?
Yes, a Power of Attorney can be revoked at any time, as long as the principal (the person who granted the power) is mentally competent. To revoke a POA, the principal needs to send a written notice of revocation to the agent (the person who was given the power) and any institutions or parties that were aware of the Power of Attorney. It's also recommended to retrieve any copies of the POA from the agent to avoid misuse.
What powers does an Attorney-in-Fact or Agent have?
An Attorney-in-Fact or Agent can have broad or limited legal authority to make decisions on the principal's behalf, depending on the type of Power of Attorney. They can manage financial and business transactions, make healthcare decisions, settle claims, and even make gifts of money. However, they must act in the principal's best interest, carry out their duties faithfully, and avoid conflicts of interest. It's important to note that the authority of an Agent ceases if the principal dies.
