Life is full of the unexpected, but just because the future is unpredictable does not mean you shouldn’t prepare for what lies ahead. 

Estate planning is important, and establishing power of attorney can be essential for men and women looking to protect their financial resources and other assets.

A power of attorney, or POA, is a document that enables an individual to appoint a person or organization to manage their affairs should they become unable to do so. According to the National Caregivers Library, POA is granted to an attorney-in-fact or agent, giving a person the legal authority to make decisions for an incapacitated principal.
