Nobody really knows what is going to happen around the corner as tomorrow may not pander out as you thought it would. Things change and things happen and before you know it, your life could change in the blink of an eye. You could have an accident that leaves you incapable of living your life normally again, or you could get sick and be unable to make the right decisions for yourself and your family. That is why the UK government is currently encouraging people to put something down on paper that sets out your wished should any of the things mentioned before occur.
It is a kind of backup plan and you can get what is known as a power of attorney in Plymouth to set out legally, your wishes. Getting this power of attorney comes with many benefits and we will look at some of them here.
- It’s not easy to sit down and talk with your family about the possibility that you may lose your mental capacity. That is why it’s better to do it now while you are still thinking straight and want the best for your family.
- It’s legally binding and so is not up for dispute, and it sets out your wishes with regard to who should handle your finances and it cuts out any issues with regard to getting money to pay for your bills.
- It takes away the difficult decisions that your family would have to make and it ensures that there will be no family squabbling or fallouts over money. It gives real peace of mind.
If you haven’t done it already, get your power of attorney drawn up this week and it’s one less thing that you have to worry about.
